As the only pediatric gastroenterologists in the area, we treat pediatric patients from premature newborns through age 18 with gastrointestinal, pancreatic, liver, nutritional or other ailments.
When a gastrointestinal (GI) disorder turns a child’s life upside down, it can be distressing for both the child and their loved ones. Unlike many childhood ailments, it may not be obvious why they don’t feel well. They may not even be able to tell you their symptoms. Trust the pediatric gastroenterology professionals at Via Christi. Mayssa Zayat, MD and Lana Hattar, MD have expert insight into the unique challenges of diagnosing and treating children’s GI disorders.
They bring the same caring touch to every child they treat. And by providing as much education as possible about the child’s disorder and treatment options available, they help ease the minds of patients and their family.
