Durham Gastroenterology Consultants- a Duke Medicine practice
The physicians and staff of Durham Gastroenterology Consultants welcome you to our practice. We are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality of care. Our physicians are Board Certified gastroenterologists, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases, including diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, gallbladder, and liver. Whether referred for office consultation or for endoscopic procedures, such as upper endoscopy or colonoscopy, our patients can expect to receive superior care in a respectful and conscientious manner. Patients are seen in consultation, at the request of their personal health care providers. Upon receipt of a referral, patients will be promptly contacted with appointment information. Results from our evaluation will be communicated to both patients and their referring health care providers in a timely manner.
It matters who performs your procedure. You can expect that your procedure will be meticulously performed with exceptional care and diligence. Our detection rates for finding and removing adenomatous colon polyps (premalignant polyps) are consistently above national standards and our complication rates are far below national averages. Additionally, all procedures are performed by one of our physicians, not a resident or fellow, in training. Nothing is more important to us than our patient's health.
Durham Gastroenterology Consultants offers patients endoscopic procedures in a convient, patient-oriented ambulatory endoscopy center.
We are now performing most of our endoscopic procedures, including upper endoscopy and colonoscopy for colon cancer screening, at Duke Triangle Endoscopy Center, located adjacent to our new office on Highway 54. Triangle Endoscopy Center is a fully licensed and accredited facility, designed specifically for performing endoscopic procedures. There are four endoscopy suites with state-of-the art safety and diagnostic equipment, convenient parking, and a covered, pick-up area for discharged patients. We are confident that patients will find Triangle Endoscopy Center to be a very pleasant, safe, and convenient alternative to hospital-based endoscopy.
Most Blue Cross and Blue Shield of NC patients eligible for co-pay only endoscopic procedures
Depending on a patient's insurance plan, having endoscopic procedures performed at Triangle Endoscopy Center may also result in far fewer out-of-pocket expenses. Contact Triangle Endoscopy Center at 544-4887 or visit the web site at www.triangleendoscopy.com for more information.
