Procedure Update


April 27th, 2020

The recent Executive Order issued by Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, has allowed us to resume the process of scheduling and performing both urgent and elective cases. Despite the loosening of restrictions, we want to assure you that your well-being remains our number one priority. We will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by various health agencies in order to keep you safe throughout the procedure process.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the above information, please do not hesitate to contact our office for more information.

COVID-19 Office Update: To our patients (present, future and potential),

The emergence of COVID-19 as a global pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for our entire society, both personally and professionally. Our business is no exception. Although we have tried to maintain a sense of normalcy throughout COVID-19’s evolution, we are no longer able to continue the routine of “business as usual”. In keeping with the guidelines set forth by the CDC, the Surgeon General of the United States and our parent company (DHAT - Digestive Health Associates of Texas), our practice is implementing the following changes immediately:

  • Our new office hours are Monday - Thursday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. With the exception of patients scheduled for urgent/emergent procedures, we will be closed on Fridays.
  • Clinic appointments will consist of urgent/emergent visits only. Routine office follow-ups (i.e. medication refills and yearly “check-ups”) will be handled by phone.

The above changes will remain in effect until we receive appropriate clearance to resume normal business operations. Until then, stay safe and healthy.

BloatingPosted January 17th, 2020

Bloating is a relatively common problem that most of us have dealt with at one time or another. Although some causes of bloating can be indicative of a serious underlying medical condition, most causes are relatively harmless. Frequently, bloating can be easily rectified with dietary and lifestyle modification. Occasionally, input from a physician may also be needed. For more on this topic, please follow the link below:



Holidays and your Digestive System

Posted September 27th, 2019

We’ve all been there: indigestion, nausea, bloating, bowel irregularity... No, it’s not the ever-dreaded “stomach bug”. Instead, it’s that most wonderful time of the year: The Holiday Season! From sugary treats to rich foods to abundant cocktails, our days and nights are frequently filled with tantalizing food and drink choices. Unfortunately, all of these palate-pleasing menu options aren’t nearly as pleasing to our digestive tracts. To find out more about how the Holiday Season wreaks havoc with our digestive system, please follow the link below:

What Is Fiber?

What is fiber?Posted June 5th, 2019

As gastroenterologists, a common topic of conversation with our patients is “fiber”. Questions range from “What is fiber?” to “Why is fiber important?” to “How much fiber do I need?”. In an effort to answer these questions, as well as a few others, please read on.

Dietary fiber, frequently referred to as roughage, is essentially indigestible plant material. Unlike proteins, carbohydrates and fats, which are broken down and absorbed by your body, fiber passes through the GI tract undigested. Although fiber isn’t digested and absorbed, it does play a key role in keeping your digestive system functioning properly.
