Stuart Akerman, MD - GI Plano, Frisco, and Dallas, TX
Helping You Feel Your Best
I am excited to connect with a new patient to listen and help them to identify and treat their gastrointestinal illnesses. Whether you are suffering from heartburn, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, or a host of other symptoms, the first step in feeling better may be discussing those symptoms with a gastroenterologist.
Cancer Screening & Prevention
Taking Care of You
Even today, GI cancers are still a major cause for concern. Thankfully, potentially life-saving screenings can be performed for colon, stomach, pancreas, and liver cancers. Dr. Akerman's Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR) for 2017-18 is 48.48% as determined by GIQuIC from the American College of Gastroenterology.
Our practice offers appropriate testing based on your personal / family history for detection and prevention. If a GI cancer diagnosis happens, we will be there with you to coordinate with a team of physicians focused on your specific treatment and well-being.
Advanced Endoscopy & Therapeutics
The Care You Deserve
Sometimes GI diseases can be complex and scary. We are here to help you understand the disease process and guide you through the appropriate treatment. Our practice may even work with your outside gastroenterologist to help you with an advanced procedure. We offer a variety of diagnostic, therapeutic, and even palliative procedures including Endoscopic Ultrasound, ERCP, Cholangioscopy, stent placement, Hemorrhoid Banding Plano, celiac plexus neurolyis, fiducial placement, and others.
