  1. It was really amazing that I found this article before I started looking for a good gastroenterologist to conduct a thorough examination of me. You mentioned preparing myself for questions that the doctor might ask like life changes that I had gone through recently and if they induced stress or anxiety. I think I can be open to these types of questions, still, it’s good to be prepared. Thank you for sharing!
