Dr. Cory Strobel introduced Pediatric Gastroenterology as a specialty to East Tennessee Children’s hospital over 25 years ago. Since that time, he has treated over 30,000 patients with various GI issues including: GERD (reflux), constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, colic, hepatic (liver) disorders, inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohns and ulcerative colitis), irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease. Our family centered approach is evident at your first visit. Dr. Strobel believes in spending time to obtain a comprehensive history so that a decision can be made for appropriate management for your child. We offer multiple procedures right here in our office and GI lab including breath hydrogen analysis testing (for lactose intolerance), H. pylori breath test, endoscopies (EGD), colonoscopies and pH studies. He will offer an explanation of why certain studies may need to be done, including any invasive endoscopic procedures. Our belief here is that many gastrointestinal symptoms can be resolved with a measured approach and less aggressive interventions initially. When necessary, invasive procedures are discussed with you keeping your child’s best interest in mind.
Nutrition is a main focus here at Pediatric GI and Nutritional Support. Our on staff nutritionist, Jennifer Masters, has been here for 20 years. She performs a variety of clinical nutrition services including evaluation and review of dietary records. Jennifer is always available to discuss your concerns either at your visit, by phone or via email.
