Gastroenterology involves the study and treatment of your digestive organs. Some of the most common conditions we treat include heartburn, celiac disease, ulcers and pancreatitis. Regardless of your health condition or symptoms, we’re here to help. We will work with you to diagnose and treat even the most complex health conditions. We look forward to speaking with you.

A colonoscopy is an examination of the large intestine and rectum, used to investigate symptoms of intestinal distress and screen for colon cancer.

An Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EDG, is a short procedure that allows our team to examine your esophagus, stomach and duodenum. It takes less than an hour and you can go home the same day.

A specialty of St. Joseph Healthcare, the video capsule endoscopy involves the patient swallowing a pill-sized camera that records images of the digestive tract. It’s used to find the cause of intestinal bleeding, examine the esophagus and screen for diseases, including cancer.

Prevent Cancer and Save Lives

“I am very passionate about colonoscopies. I feel it is by far the best screening modality to detect and prevent this silent killer. It will be my screening modality of choice when I am due for colon cancer screening.”
