Carolina Digestive Diseases provides the most comprehensive range of gastroenterology specialty services in Pitt County. We also provide second opinion consultative and advanced endoscopic services for our colleagues who practice gastroenterology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, as well as thoracic, hepatobiliary, pancreatic and colorectal surgery. These services are performed by highly trained gastroenterologists with additional training qualifications that by far exceed standard gastroenterology fellowship and hospital credentialing requirements. Additionally, our physicians have years of practice experience in consultative capacities at major tertiary level academic institutions.
