Dr. Afzal was voted one of the best Gastroenterologist in Will County by readers of the Herald News for 2017!


As your Gastroenterologist, my priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.

Quality Care

When you have digestive problems, you need to turn to a gastroenterologist who listens and responds...an experienced doctor who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs...a friendly physician who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our physicians meet all these criteria. Plus, you benefit from a dedicated team of trained gastroenterology professionals who give you the individualized attention you deserve.

Informed Patients

Dr. Afzal believes that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well being. That is why we've included an extensive section on the website covering the full array of topics associated with gastroenterology and diagnoses and treatments for digestive problems. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your digestive health.

Comfortable, Convenient Setting

The best care in the world doesn't mean anything if you can't access it. At Southwest Gastroenterology, we strive to make our New Lenox office as efficient and convenient as possible. Included in these web pages is information about Dr. Afzal's office, including our New Lenox location, maps, directions, hours, insurance policies and appointment scheduling. You can even email a request for an appointment right here!

If you are relatively healthy, you can book a screening colonoscopy directly without an office visit!  Selected Saturday appointments are also available for your convenience.

We hope you find this website useful and invite you to contact us with your questions at any time.
