Who we are
Novant Health Pediatric Gastroenterology treats the entire digestive tract in patients from infants to adolescents. The pediatric gastroenterologists at our six Charlotte-area offices provide diagnoses and medical management for common and complex disorders of the esophagus, stomach, intestine, colon, liver and pancreas, as well as nutritional disorders.
All physicians at Novant Health Pediatric Gastroenterology are board eligible or board certified. This means they have undergone years of extensive training in the field of pediatric gastroenterology, and have demonstrated a high level of skill in the field throughout their decades of experience.
The physicians of Novant Health Pediatric Gastroenterology have consistently been recognized among the top doctors in both the Charlotte area and the state of North Carolina. Dr. Houck and Dr. Sandberg have both been listed among North Carolina's Top Doctors in North Carolina Magazine for 2013! Our physicians have also been listed on the U.S. News List of Top Doctors. These awards are the results of reviews from the doctors' peers across the medical profession. We are proud of these recognitions. They mean other local doctors would want our practice to treat their patients or their own children if they needed gastroenterology care.
Our doctors are active in the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), as well as the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN). Both of these organizations are working to find treatments and cures for pediatric gastroenterology ailments.
Many of the doctors and staff members at Novant Health Pediatric Gastroenterology are parents themselves. They understand what it's like to have a sick child, and want to do everything possible to make your child feel better.
