A gastroenterologist deals with gastrointestinal problems (stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, biliary tract, and pancreas diseases).
The IBD nurse counsels patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
The main problems and reasons for consulting a gastroenterologist: constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, or a lot of gas, analyses reveal poor blood, liver, and pancreas function disorders and pain in the stomach.
You can see a gastroenterologist or an IBD nurse without a referral. Reception financed by the Health Insurance Fund takes place only if there is a referral letter.
