Our physicians are experts in colonoscopy to diagnose and prevent colon cancer. Studies have demonstrated a considerably lower rate of colon cancer in those who undergo a colonoscopy by a gastroenterologist compared to that by a surgeon. Colonoscopy is a very important test which should only be performed by those with gastroenterology fellowship training in this procedure.

We take great pride in being the physician that can serve your many needs. Gastroenterology involves the study of the digestive tract, the pancreas, and the liver. The digestive tract includes the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, and the colon.
