Exceptional GI care for women by women

Our Mission: To improve the health and longevity of women’s lives through high-quality, compassionate, and dedicated digestive care.

Care at the Women’s Center for GI Health is based on the fact that the gastrointestinal health of women is unique. While the digestive tracts of men and women serve the same basic function, women experience gastrointestinal issues and symptoms related to hormonal changes, pregnancy, and stress. In addition, certain gastrointestinal diseases occur more frequently in women, and some medications used to treat gastrointestinal disorders are processed differently by the female body.

Many women experience digestive health issues that negatively impact their lives, but are too embarassed to discuss them with their physicians. Our Women’s Center is a setting where discussing intimate issues with your female physician is comfortable and not rushed. Communication is the basis for accurately and effectively diagnosing and treating many GI health issues. Drs. Miller and Scholl both have a special interest in women’s health, and are able to approach sensitive topics from the female perspective. With an all-female staff, gender specific, compassionate care and open communication are the standard.
