GI Associates has a pediatric division dedicated to treating gastrointestinal disorders in children. We realize that children have gastrointestinal diseases that are different from adults and require a unique approach. Our team consists of three pediatric gastroenterologists, a nurse practitioner, registered nurses, and medical assistants. Our pediatric gastroenterologists are specifically trained to help children with gastrointestinal disorders. They have dedicated nurses and staff members to make the pediatric patient and family feel more at ease.

To make an appointment with our pediatric gastroenterologists, please call us at 601-355-1234. We see patients in our Flowood office. At your initial visit, our team will begin working with your family to provide the best treatment and care possible. Our office will send out a welcome packet when your child is scheduled for an appointment with more detailed information. We look forward to serving you and your family. Stay up to date with the latest pediatrics news on our blog

Gigi the Giraffe, Your Child's New Friend

All of us are nervous going to the doctor, and sometimes it can be even more difficult for kids. We understand how kids feel, so we created Gigi the Giraffe to help!

When your child comes in for an appointment, make sure to ask for your free copy of the Gigi the Giraffe coloring book. It's not only a coloring book, though. It tells the story of how Gigi went to the doctor and what it was like for her.

By seeing and understanding a little bit of what will happen during their doctor visit through Gigi's story, your child's nervousness will be lessened. Plus, they'll have something to do throughout the visit!

We care about every aspect of your child's visit to GI Peds—and Gigi the Giraffe is a great example of that.
