Great Plains Health now offers expert consultations and ongoing care for patients with complex and chronic gastrointestinal conditions by gastroenterologist Dr. Jeffrey Cloud.

Cloud is triple board-certified and fellowship trained, GPH spokeswoman Megan McGown said.

The gastrointestinal clinic opened in August and is located at Great Plains Health general surgery, Centennial Park Medical Building, 500 West Leota, Suite 120 in North Platte. Dr. Cloud will be holding clinic days in North Platte on a monthly basis.

“Adding this service to our community, shows our ongoing commitment to serving the people of our region with the best possible care close to home,” said Great Plains Health CEO, Mel McNea. “This service is unique to our area and means that patients no longer have to drive great distances to receive gastroenterology care; they can get it right here in North Platte.”

Cloud is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Gastroenterology.

He attended medical school at U.T. Southwestern Medical School, Dallas, TX, and residency at Parkland Hospital / U.T. Southwestern, Dallas, TX. Dr. Cloud also completed fellowships in infectious disease at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA, and in gastroenterology at Univ. of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville, VA.

Complex conditions being treated include colon polyps, Crohn’s disease, diverticulosis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), irritable bowel syndrome, liver and biliary disease and rectal bleeding and ulcerative colitis.
