Gastroenterology

Dr. Reginald Sandy is an affiliated Gastroenterologist at DCH. He specializes in endoscopic and gastroenterology procedures, including colonoscopy. He treats all types of upper and lower GI conditions including colorectal cancer. If you are over 50 years of age, ask your primary care doctor about having a baseline colonoscopy. This minimally invasive procedure can significantly reduce the risk of developing colon cancer.

Dr. Sandy can address digestion concerns and issues related to pelvic health and treat all types of GI conditions including Crohn’s disease, gluten sensitivities and food allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Hepatitis C, and abdominal pain and bloating.

  • Pain or discomfort in the chest
  • Sleep disruption (unable to sleep lying down)
