BIO
Mounzer Al Samman, MD, QME, I treat my patients in the same way I would like to be treated — with care and respect. I have practiced in Fairfield for more than 15 years and some of my first patients are still with me. Many other patients have come to my practice as my patients refer their family and friends.

Gastroenterology is the study of the normal function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver. Some of the conditions I treat include peptic ulcer disease, gastric and esophageal cancers, colon and bowel cancers, pancreatitis and pancreatic cancers, biliary tract disease, gallbladder stones and cancer, esophageal reflux, colitis and nutritional problems.

For several years I have offered my patients the leading-edge technology of the GI Pill Cam. The GI Pill Cam is a small capsule that patients simply swallow during an in-office procedure. A tiny camera in the capsule transmits thousands of images of the small intestine as it passes through their system. An advantage of the GI Pill Cam is that the procedure does not require sedation and patients can perform their regular activities while it is working. If a GI condition is identified, a separate procedure or therapy is used for treatment.
