Technology is part of the solution.

Our physicians have performed thousands of complex gastro-intestinal procedures, and certainly our experience and efficiency are assuring. We employ the newest technologies, such as the non-surgical Stretta procedure for heartburn relief and the Given’s Capsule (a pill-sized imaging device for close-up views of the small intestine) to investigate internal bleeding. We stay on top of the newest medical treatments, such as Remicade infusions for Crohn’s disease, and were the first providers in the area for the newest Hepatitis C treatments. We are committed to rigorous standards of cleanliness, sterilization, safety and confidentiality.

But we take it a step further.

The rest of the solution lies in our respect for you, a unique person with individual needs. We take extra care in providing patient comfort, such as our Bair Hugger warming blankets and cheerful recovery areas with televisions, recliners and a hospitality cart. And your recovery is remarkably swift – as part of our sedation process, we are the area’s only provider using Propofol for endoscopic procedures, because it virtually eliminates drug-like after-effects.

Communication completes the picture.

Before you leave the Center for Digestive Wellness, your referring practitioner is receiving reports from your procedure, including the findings and recommended treatment. You will be given your own copy, and will have the opportunity to discuss your procedure and treatment.
