Gastroenterology tests help diagnose gastrointestinal disorders and prevent dangerous diseases—gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, stomach ulcers, cancer, etc.
We recommend undergoing gastroenterology tests if:
- you have gastrointestinal disorders;
- someone in your family has had gastrointestinal disorders;
- you take medication which negatively affects the function of the digestive tract;
- you drink alcohol or smoke a lot;
- you are under constant stress;
- your diet is irregular and poor;
- you have heartburn or your stomach acidity has increased;
- you keep experiencing bloating and constipation;
- you have diarrhoea;
- you have noticed blood in your stool.
You do not have to schedule an appointment in advance, you can simply check in at reception and request to be tested.

Why it is worth
To be examined at our Centre?
- We perform high quality tests which has been confirmed by the ISO 15189 certification of our laboratory.
- The results of the tests performed in our laboratory are explained by our staff, a service that is provided by only a few laboratories in the country.
- We can do additional digestive system tests, if needed, from the same blood sample taken up to 7 days previously. This is especially relevant for children or patients living in other towns!
- There is no risk of damage or mix-up of test samples during transportation, which statistically is one of the leading causes for ruined blood samples in labs.
