Diagnosis and Treatment

Upper and Lower Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a procedure that allows a Gastroenterologist to look at the inside of the gastrointestinal tract using an endoscope. An endoscopy is performed to discover reasons for problems including swallowing difficulties, bleeding, indigestion, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, reflux, chest pain or diarrhea.

Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy is used to look at the inside lining of the small intestine. Conventional upper endoscopy will only visualize the beginning of the small intestine, and colonoscopy will only visualize the end of small intestine. Capsule endoscopy is a way of bridging that gap to see the entire intestine.

pH Probe Study

A pH probe study is designed to assess acid reflux in your child. Sometimes this study can be performed "with impedance," which means that it will also detect non-acid reflux.

Talking about Elaine Barfield, M.D.

"Honestly I would give her 1000 out of 10 for being sooo kind and never rushing or trying to get rid of her patients . She’s knows her work and is very informative. She listens and has great treatments offers which do wonders . It’s rare to find such doctors because most will ignore what you say and do what pleases them . This doctor won’t give up till the situation is tackled. Also PLEASE don’t be LATE not even 5mins . They are very strict when it comes to appointments. You rather be safe than sorry for such a great doctor . It’s worth it trust me :)"
