Our aim is to provide the highest quality of medical care. We believe that this includes not only medical expertise and access to the latest advances in medical technology, but also a patient-doctor relationship based upon respect and understanding.
We are committed to excellence and will respond to our patients with a level of care that exceeds their expectations. As a team, we will work to be increasingly recognized as providing the highest quality care available in our profession as measured by patient satisfaction and cost effectiveness.
Scope of Practice
The doctors and certified physician assistants specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of all diseases and disorders affecting the digestive system. This includes diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, anus, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. They offer in-office consultation, hospital care, and a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Dedication to Advancement
Continuing Medical Education
All of our physicians are committed to continued learning in their field of expertise. In order to stay up to date on current research and trends, they each attend at least 60 hours of “Continuing Medical Education” courses (half of which are done exclusively through accredited organizations) biannually. In addition, members of the team monitor activity from the American College of Gastroenterology and American Gastroenterological Association to stay informed.
Associates in Gastroenterology is devoted to its patients and managing their various gastrointestinal (GI) issues. As medicine advances, new technologies are continuously researched and evaluated with our patient base in mind. The team ensures that any new technologies will create a benefit for the patients that cannot be easily attained through alternatives. To ensure we are offering the best for our patients, the high level of technology is matched with a high grade of training.
Going forward, Endoscopy Associates will be benchmarked against several different endoscopy centers by the Accreditation Association for for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). In order to maintain accreditation through the AAAHC, each center must show dedication to quality improvement both medical respects and in overall patient care.
