We use minimally invasive techniques and tools to provide faster recovery with less discomfort. Some of our advanced screening and diagnostic tests include:
- Capsule endoscopy
- Barrett’s esophagus testing
- Breath testing for bacterial overgrowth
- Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) to remove cancerous lesions from the digestive tract
- Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), a pancreas and bile duct exam
- Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)
- Upper endoscopy (EGD)
Patients can rely on our on-call doctor answering service for 24-hour access if an urgent health concern arises. We also subscribe to a translation service that gives us access to more than 100 language translators who also are medical professionals. This is to ensure we thoroughly answer our patients’ questions and deliver accurate information before and after tests or exams.

Our doctors work closely with minimally invasive surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, and nutritionists to care for our patients’ unique health needs. Palliative care providers meet support our patients’ families and work with patients to reduce pain during and after cancer treatment.
It’s our goal to educate the community about digestive cancer screening, including colonoscopies and endoscopic screenings. Ultimately, we want to help reduce the number of gastrointestinal cancers through comprehensive screening programs.
