Julian Deese, MD, is a board-certified gastroenterologist who practices at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Pittsburg. “I base my approach to medicine on the importance of prevention and total body care, rather than just specialty care, and that prevention of disease is fundamental."
As a gastroenterologist, he treats a wide range of abdominal ailments, including esophageal reflux, gallbladder disease, diverticular disease, irritable and inflammatory bowel, celiac disease, colon cancers, fatty liver, obesity and weight gain.
Board certified in obesity medicine, internal medicine and gastroenterology, Dr. Deese said lifestyle change is the key to better health. “It has to be a time commitment, three to six months for most people, and a combination of nutrition, exercise and mindful eating.”
