Dr. Miskovitz then explains the disorders that can affect your esophagus, stomach, intestine, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, colon, and abdominal cavity--revealing how to identify and treat problems and, in most cases, prevent them. You'll also learn how to:

* Find the right gastroenterologist for you
* Identify symptoms and get an accurate diagnosis
* Prevent gastrointestinal problems when you travel
