Anorectal and GI Services

Tampa, FL


The gastrointestinal tract plays a vital role in maintaining our overall health. Digestion of food is a complex mechanism that starts in the mouth and ends at the anus. Usually we are not aware of these processes, but a breakdown in the machinery of the body results in disease and pathology. 


Most people have digestive concerns that are not easy to address or talk about. Also, most people are looking for a physician who will spend time with them, understand and hear their concerns and answer questions.  An atmosphere of mutual trust and respect allows for healing to begin. The team at ColoWell America aims to find innovative treatment to these common ailments in a comprehensive and relaxed atmosphere.

Many of the symptoms can be confusing and similar. For example, anorectal pain or bleeding could be due to hemorrhoids, fissures, abscesses or even cancer. Due to this, we need to identify the specific condition and develop a treatment that meets the patient’s needs.


As a Board Certified Colon and Rectal Surgeon and General Surgeon with interest in gastrointestinal disease pathology, Dr Shiraz Farooq and his team will find the right solutions for your health. We are confident that your health is in good hands.

Symptoms to Keep an Eye Out For

By identifying the proper symptoms, the patient can seek professional care. Common symptoms of anorectal and gastrointestinal diseases and other conditions include:


  • Pain in the anus

  • Rectal bleeding

  • Light-headedness and dizziness following the bleeding

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Abdominal pain such as cramping or bloating

  • Constipation or diarrhea

  • Mucus in the stool

  • Excess gas


Some of us have experienced these symptoms and most patients realize that diet has a big role to play in gastrointestinal health and overall healing. A plant based diet goes a long way to make sure that we get optimal fuel. At ColoWell America, we emphasize the importance of increasing fiber in the diet and adding food supplements that can decrease inflammation and reduce oxidative stress at the cellular level.
