Gastroenterological visit, when to do it

The gastroenterological visit at Quisisana, for a fee and not affiliated with the National Health System, is carried out by dr. Vincenzo Matarese or by prof. dr. Vincenzo Abbasciano within an excellent structure, characterized by a high selectivity in the choice of its specialists.

How does the gastroenterological visit take place? The first phase of the visit concerns the anamnesis: the doctor will collect from the patient all the information regarding symptoms, lifestyle and familiarity with any pathologies. Once this is done, he will proceed with a palpation of the abdomen in order to find any problems. After having carried out the medical history and visited the patient, the specialist may request laboratory and/or instrumental tests such as abdominal ultrasound, gastroscopy or rectocoloscopy, in order to have all the useful elements for a more precise diagnosis.

The first gastroenterological visit lasts about 20 minutes and does not require any type of preparation. It is advisable to bring any results of previous exams with you.
