What is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is the medical specialty that deals with problems of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.

Brittany was very thorough and listened to everything I had to say. She took notes the entire time. I liked that she wanted to have a test run before she prescribed medication. Everyone there was friendly and helpful.

LeAnn Lucas

It's rare for me to feel completely cared for by a provider. Mrs. Phillips was caring, open, and honest with me. I appreciate that so much!

Crystal Trignano

I have seen Brittany Direnberger NP for my office visits and she is very thorough and takes all the time that you need with her. Dr. Hussein has done my procedures and has done a very good job. I have gone to him for quite a few years and have never had any problems with him.

Cindy Powell

Brittney was so thorough and really proactive with all my symptoms and concerns. Received excellent evaluation and care.

Best gastro doctor in Missouri. No one like him from St. Louis to Memphis. Cares about you. Smart. Best mannerism. Not rushed like other doorknob holders.

I credit Dr Hussein with saving my life years ago. He came in as a sub for another dr and corrected what several drs had messed up. I absolutely trust him.
