I'm new here but I wanted to let you know what happens when we see the GI doc. We see our GI doc. around once every 3 months.
The first time we visited he just pushed on her tummy and asked alot of questions about her eating habits, stools, ect. He took some blood for a handful of tests and may have taken urine, I can't remember. Then because of what led us to him, we scheduled an Indoscopi to take samples from her upper gi track. We also talked to a nutrionist while we were there, she ofcourse told us all the calorie adders we could give, some techniques to use when feeding ect. Oh and a weight check.
The next time we got the indoscopi and weight check and we were sent home.
The next time we went over the results (since there was nothing wrong he waited till our next apt. to talk about the results.), we were concerned about a couple more tests so he took more blood. Did a weight check, we talked to the nutrionist again, and her eating habits again.
The last time we wen't over blood results and talked about her eating habits and such, did a weight check, ect.
We are scheduled to have another apt. here soon where we will be doing basicly the same things. They said that we could be seeing the GI doc. for as long as she was in the lower precintile. right now I think she is around the 3rd precintile, she was off the chart but gained 2 lbs over the last year so that put her in the 3rd.
We only started seeing the GI Doc. March of this year.
Hope that helps, I'm sure it goes differently for everyone, but maybe that will give you an idea.

my son went at 6 months old. at his first appt they did his weight, length, temp and blood pressure. the doctor looked at him without his shirt on and tested his skin (for elasticity, etc, just with her hands, no pain). they told me that they wanted me recording his formula and food intake (time and amounts) and then sent us for blood and urine work. he had already had an uppper GI so she looked at those results (they were normal). i'm sure it will vary. good luck! let us know how it goes!
