Dr. Jay Kamath

My goal at Florida Digestive Specialists is to help every patient live a life with as few symptoms as possible. We know how debilitating unmanaged digestive health issues can be and work hard to maximize quality of life for all of our patients.

Many of our patients are referred to us by primary care doctors and specialists. We recognize the importance of comprehensive medicine and can communicate each patient’s diagnosis and progress with other physicians within their realm of care.

For more information about the gastroenterology team at our office, we invite you to contact our office. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you schedule a consultation at your convenience.

Patient Reviews

" I have been having my endoscopy with Dr. Kamath for the past 4 years. I would recommend anyone to have their procedures done at this facility. The staff is professional, loving and efficient. Everyone knows what they are doing so there’s no confusion. Dr. Kamath greets me with a smile each time I’ve met him and handled my visits to his office like I’m a human being and never a number. The facility is clean . Smells and looks great and my favorite of all is… I never wait long. The office gives you an appointment, and they take you on time. I’ll go to dr Kamath and recommend him always."
