More than 100,000 Americans develop colorectal cancer every year, and it’s the second-most common cause of cancer deaths among men and women combined.
Colonoscopy is a highly effective colon exam. In fact, it could save your life by detecting colon cancer early or removing potentially precancerous polyps.
Virtually everyone suffers from constipation sometime during their life, but when it continues long-term and causes serious discomfort, it’s time to get help.
Inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect as many as 1.6 million Americans.
Diverticulosis refers to the presence of small out-pouchings (called diverticuli) or sacs that can develop in the lining of the gastrointestinal tract.
Early gastric cancer (EGC) screening
Cancer of the stomach, or gastric cancer, is a disease in which stomach cells become malignant (cancerous) and grow out of control, forming a tumor.
An endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure to examine your digestive tract for disease or irregularities.
Fatty liver disease is a common condition that can develop into serious inflammation, scarring, and liver failure.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
When you have weeks of acid reflux and heartburn and episodes more than twice per week, you may have developed gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Heartburn is associated with acid reflux, a condition in which stomach acid flows back up into your esophagus and causes burning in your chest.

Hepatitis is a disease that causes inflammation of the liver. It can be either acute (lasting less than six months) or chronic (lasting more than six months).

Peptic ulcer disease occurs when the stomach acid penetrates the stomach or intestinal lining and causes ulcers, an often painful sore in the lining.
If your immune system goes into overdrive, it can trigger ulcerative colitis, a disorder causing cramps, diarrhea, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
Hear What They Say About Us
Dr. Shim took her time explaining things to me in as much detail as I could handle, and I know what to expect from our next meeting, depending on how I respond to her suggested treatment. Thanks Dr.!
I appreciated Dr. Shim's humor and matter-of-factness. I felt like I was talking with someone very knowledgeable and with the ability to laugh.
Dr. Shim is excellent, as is her staff. I think Dr. Shim has done all my colonoscopies for the past 20 years at least. Highly recommend.
I appreciate Dr. Shim's direct-yet-sensitive style of delivery. My appointments are very thorough and I have never felt rushed. I just told the office today she reminds me of an "auntie"
Pleasant and Professional. Nice combination. I definitely recommend.
She has amazing bed side manners, a great staff, and she is very helpful and personable, and professional. I need to leave her practice since I'm moving out of state and I will miss her as my gastroenterologist. I have ulcerative colitis and felt completely secure in her and her staff's care. I highly recommend her practice.
