Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Dr. Jeffrey Schneider, Gastroenterologist with Baptist Health South Florida, says irritable bowel syndrome is a tremendous problem; it is probably the second most common reason to see a gastroenterologist. He explains it is a functional problem, and there is not a cure. "Patients have trouble understanding that there is nothing there, it is a syndrome, when we do tests, and we don't find anything."
