Advanced Gastrointestinal (GI) Nurse Practitioners (NP) are licensed professionals who bring important skills to contemporary GI practices. Our Nurse Practitioners are registered nurses who have first gained clinical experience from years of caring for patients. Then they have to earn an advanced (master’s level) education from an accredited training program and pass certification as an Adult NP program. Our NP’s are board-certified and licensed by the State of Missouri. They are qualified to evaluate and treat patients with acute and chronic diseases. These include IBS, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, liver disease, diverticulitis and GERD.
