Any doctor: Can check these "piles" to make sure that is what they are and to recommend some treatments. Urgent care, primary care provider, internal medicine, you do not need a specialist. Eat plenty of vegetables and fiber, drink plenty of fluids, don't let yourself get constipated and soak your "piles" in comfortably warm water several times each day.

Agree with Dr. A: However, if Dr. A's advice does not help, see a surgeon to have the piles removed. Take oral iron and multivitamins to prevent anemia from blood loss.

Hemorrhoids: I've always found that a proctologist or colorectal surgeon are best to evaluate and treat the patient with problematic hemorrhoids. If the bleeding is frequent, excessive and from internal hemorrhoids, a banding procedure can be performed in the office and should be curative.
