Answer

Consult a gastroenterologist to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment. A gastroenterologist should also be consulted for cases involving moderate-to-severe bleeding, perforation, or suspected obstruction. Consulting an infectious disease specialist may be necessary in difficult cases. A surgical consultation may be necessary for perforation and fistulas. Other consultations may be sought as indicated.
