Hi, I'm going to a gastroenterologist and it's my first time going I want to know what do they do on a first visit? Do they examine your private area? Please let me know.

Thank You,

Thank you for your reply. I do know I'm seeing the GI doctor this Thursday and I'm actually in a lot of pain in my stomach. Since it's my first visit and being in lots of pain could it mean that he will do a rectal exam? Please let me know.

Thank You,
