Digestive Care Center - Ask the Expert - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Why choose the Digestive Care Center?

Digestive Care Center was established by Gastroenterology Associates in 2013 to be the all-encompassing center for all your digestive needs. Growth and change are constant for Gastroenterology Associates because our goal is to provide patients with the highest and most comprehensive quality of service with a caring approach. Gastroenterology Associates have served the community for over 40 years and are proud to be a part of Digestive Care Center.  Our providers have a long standing history of dealing with digestive disease management, diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy and preventative health care management. DCC physicians are experts in their field, with access to the most up-to-date procedures and technologies. Their commitment to your health begins with preventative care and extends through diagnosis and treatment programs.

What makes us different?

All our physicians are board certified in Gastroenterology, having accumulated at least six years of training after medical school. The gastroenterology training experience is far more intense than that undertaken by general surgeons, internists, or family practitioners who decide to add endoscopy to their practices and they are trained to interpret and treat the conditions they identify and uphold the safest level of endoscopy.

The physicians who make up Digestive Care Center have been trained all over the United States and this diversity allows our physicians quick access to multiple sources of expertise and enables them to have a dynamic collegial approach to problem cases and stimulated discussion.

The unique training that Gastroenterologists complete provides them with the ability to provide high quality, comprehensive care for patients with a wide variety of gastrointestinal ailments. Gastroenterologists perform the bulk of research involving gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures as well as the interpretation of results, and are considered experts in the field. Studies have shown that Gastroenterologists perform higher quality colonoscopy examinations and comprehensive consultative services when compared to other physicians. This translates into more accurate detection of polyps and cancer by complications from procedures and fewer days in the hospital for many gastrointestinal conditions managed by trained gastroenterology specialists. It is this ability to provide more complete, accurate, and thorough care for patients with gastrointestinal conditions, which distinguishes Gastroenterologists from other physicians that provide some similar services.
