Find Relief from Painful Symptoms
- Diagnosing Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids can be distressing, especially if you're experiencing them for the first time. You may feel anxious about bright red or dark blood showing up in your stool and sidelined from your life by symptoms like discomfort, itching, and swelling. But there's no cause for worry. Hemorrhoids are a very common and highly treatable condition, and our team of specialists are experts in guiding you toward hemorrhoid relief.
With certain types of hemorrhoids, we may recommend additional tests, like a digital rectal exam or sigmoidoscopy, to rule out other possible causes of your symptoms, like Gastrointestinal Bleeding. Our goal is to diagnose you quickly and effectively — so we can move on to controlling your hemorrhoids, treating your uncomfortable symptoms and getting you back to the rich, fulfilling life you deserve.
