While we welcome and encourage our patients to discuss with us any concerns they have about their digestive health, the internet provides additional resources for medical information. Unfortunately, not all web sources are reliable or of satisfactory quality. Here are some trusted websites that can provide you with additional information on a variety of conditions that affect the digestive tract, liver, gall bladder and pancreas.
http://www.uptodate.com/patients | a good comprehensive source for many medical conditions.
http://www.ccfa.org | official site of the Crohn’s Colitis Foundation of America
http://www.liverfoundation.org | the American Liver Foundation resource for all persons with liver issues
http://www.aasld.org/patients | a patient-oriented page with valuable links from the main professional organization dedicated to the study of liver disease
http://www.asge.org/patients | a patient-oriented webpage from the main professional organization for gastrointestinal endoscopy
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions | another reliable resource of broad areas of general medical care
These websites also contain links to other trusted resources. An informed patient is a good partner as we work to help you with your GI health issues.
