Prevention and Screening
Early detection is the key to preventing colon cancer. Saint Thomas Health recommends that everyone 50 or older receive yearly colonoscopies. Schedule an appointment with a board-certified gastroenterologist today to learn about your risk factors and treatment options for a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders.
Along with performing colonoscopies for colon cancer screening, we see patients for conditions including Barrett's esophagus, pancreatic disorders, colitis, acid reflux, Hepatitis C and other liver diseases, celiac disease, nutritional disorders and irritable bowel syndrome. We are here to help you with your severe stomach aches and abdominal pains. We know getting a colonoscopy isn’t very fun, and our goal is to make your experience as comfortable as possible. With multiple locations throughout the community we provide the best possible care for our patients closer to home. We look forward to caring for you.
