The stomach, esophagus, large and small intestines, liver, and more make up your digestive and gastrointestinal systems. These systems work together to move food and other substances through the body, digest and absorb nutrients, and remove waste.
A primary care provider may refer you to a gastroenterologist if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- difficulty swallowing
- stomach pain
- nausea and vomiting
