A gastroenterologist is a doctor whose specialty is treating diseases related to the digestive system, which includes the esophagus, intestines, pancreas and colon as well as their accessory glands. Some gastroenterologists practice hepatology, a subdiscipline of gastroenterology dealing with diseases of the liver.
