Our practice is unique because we spend a lot of time with our patients and their families. We believe that patients do better when they are well-informed and educated about their health. We combine alternative medicine, nutrition and lifestyle with western medicine and state-of-the art technology in procedures to achieve the best outcomes.
Dr. Mehdizadeh is not only an expert in procedures such as endoscopy and colonoscopy, but also performs advanced therapeutic endoscopy to treat diseases of the bile duct, liver, pancreas and cancers of the esophagus, stomach and colon.
Prevention is the best way to promote health. Early detection saves lives. Many disorders of the digestive tract such as cancers of the colon, rectum and esophagus are easily preventable and may be curable if diagnosed early. For example, removing colon polyps by colonoscopy reduce the risk of colon cancer. Treatment of acid reflux (GERD) and proper evaluation by an upper endoscopy can decrease the risk of esophageal cancer. Eradicating bacteria called H. pylori can reduce the risk of gastric cancer. As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Mehdizadeh specializes in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of common and rare gastrointestinal cancers. Read More
