Overview

We believe in the importance of convenient, caring, innovative digestive health treatments and screenings. Using advanced technology and drawing from the expertise of very experienced gastroenterologists (GI doctors), surgeons and staff, we can offer you the highest quality care for any digestive health or gastrointestinal issues you may have.

Colon cancer is the most commonly diagnosed non-skin cancer in men in the United States. Our Endoscopy Center offers screening services that can save your life. We understand the cautious feelings patients have about their visit here, so our innovative approach means we make things easier for patients, in multiple ways — starting with convenient parking and registration!

Early diagnosis is critical

By making it easier for you to detect problems that arise earlier, we can achieve better results, together. Of course, when no problem is detected, our safe, accurate and convenient endoscopy and colonoscopy screenings offer peace of mind.

When problems arise, count on continuous care

Our continuous care model, a patient-centric process, puts a single team of gastroenterologists, surgeons and healthcare personnel on your side, from admittance to recovery, and beyond.

How We Compare

Our continuous care model makes things easier for patients. Making things easier means if problems are detected, treatment flows smoothly and better results can be achieved. We hope that, while not a lot of people talk about these things with their friends and neighbors, our services are such that people might, otherwise, boast about them.

Get Help

We offer innovative testing and treatment for a number of digestive disorders.

A dedicated staff of top gastrointestinal experts is ready to help with any GI problems you may be experiencing. You can ask your physician to refer you to the Endoscopy Center for:

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Heartburn is a classic symptom of GERD, but you may also experience frequent burping or belching, difficult or painful swallowing and a frequent need for antacids.

Barrett's Syndrome

Barrett's Syndrome, also called Barrett's Esophagus or BE, is a change in the lining of the esophagus caused by the acid reflux that occurs with GERD. The changed lining is not cancer, but can lead to it.
