Caring for you, close to home
Our mission is to improve the health of the people in our communities by preventing and managing digestive illnesses with expertise and compassion in a fiscally responsible manner.
We are committed to preventing colon cancer and to optimizing your digestive health.
Our experience makes us experts in Colon Cancer prevention and detection: Combined, our physicians perform more than 8,000 colonoscopies a year! Every DHS physician performs at least 150 colonoscopies each year, with most of our physicians completing more than 800 of these procedures annually – significantly over the nationally recommended averages! Our physicians maintain a high colon-polyp detection rate – well above the national benchmarks!
We provide patient-centered, evidence-based treatment and preventative management of all digestive disorders and conditions, including Celiac disease, Colon Cancer prevention, Constipation, Crohn’s disease, Diarrhea, Hepatitis and related liver problems, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Reflux disease (GER/GERD) and swallowing difficulties, Ulcerative colitis, and Ulcers. Our physicians and staff recognize that strong and healthy relationships must be formed to successfully treat each patient’s individual condition. We believe that every patient is different and will require a high-quality, personalized plan of care to meet their unique needs.
Physicians: Twelve board-certified physicians
Physician Assistants: Eight board-certified physician assistants
Training: All DHS physicians are board-certified or eligible gastroenterologists trained in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. All of our doctors completed three to four years of GI training in addition to an internal medicine residency. As part of their training, they received specialized training in colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures.
Caring Staff: Our Physicians, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, and other medical and support staff all share the common goal of providing each of our patients with an excellent experience. Our team works together to provide focused and compassionate medical care to each individual that we see.
