Our fellowship-trained gastroenterologists specialize in a wide variety of issues, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Barrett’s esophagus, Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), celiac disease and more.

Our doctors stay current on the latest treatments, medications and procedures for gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. This way, you can be sure that you’re receiving the best possible care. Our specialists are here to listen to your concerns and provide you with an individualized treatment plan that fits your needs, goals and lifestyle.

Seamless Coordination of Specialty Care

Our gastroenterologists are dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of digestive diseases. Whether you were referred to us by your primary care doctor, another gastroenterologist or from a hospital stay, you can rest assured that your digestive care is in capable and competent hands.

We work to see new patients as quickly as possible, so we can help you get on the road to recovery. Our office staff is experienced in obtaining insurance pre-authorizations, so you don’t have to worry about delays in your care.

For conditions requiring surgery, we work with our general surgery department. Our colleagues in surgery are also committed to seeing patients as quickly as possible so they can begin addressing their digestive concerns.

BIDMC Digestive Disease Center Affiliation

If you have a complex disorder and need advanced diagnostics or treatments, our doctors will refer you to the Digestive Disease Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in Boston. This Center is one of the nation’s largest digestive disease programs.

The doctors at BIDMC work in partnership with gastroenterologists at Anna Jaques to collaborate on each case from start to finish. Together, we’ll ensure that the transition between Boston and Anna Jaques is seamless.
