Our practice and the Digestive Diseases Center (DDC) were designed around patients’ needs, comfort, and convenience. We realize the very sensitive nature of gastrointestinal illness and understand the necessity to provide our services in an environment which stresses patient privacy and confidentiality.
The DDC is also a vital tool for our doctors to better care for their patients. The center is outfitted with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and the best staff available so that we can exceed your expectations.
The DDC is located inside our building, and offers a comfortable reception/waiting area for patients and family members. Patients arriving at our facility for outpatient testing need not worry about the long waits, impersonal service, and admissions red-tape common at inpatient treatment facilities. We do our best to minimize the time and anxiety inevitably associated with gastrointestinal treatments, while making sure that we maintain our high standards of individual attention, thoroughness, and quality.
We provide the following medical services at the DDC:
- Esophageal pH (Bravo) Studies
- Consultative Gastroenterology and Hepatology Services
- EGD (Upper Endoscopy)
- Flexible Sigmoidoscopy
- Colonoscopy (Lower Endoscopy)
Patients are prepared for tests in our pre-treatment area. Each of our procedure suites is efficiently fitted with cutting-edge endoscopy and video equipment. After procedures are completed, patients will recover in a monitored area. Results may be discussed with family members in our private consultation room (if the patient consents to sharing of medical information).
