In addition to exceeding all state and federal guidelines, we are fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Endoscopic procedures play an important role in diagnosing medical conditions such as cancer of the colon or rectum. Colonoscopy is used to prevent colorectal cancer by the timely indentification and removal of cancerous polyps. Likewise, upper endoscopy enables physicians to look inside the esophagus, stomach and small intestine to discover reasons for swallowing difficulties, reflux, abdominal or chest pain, indigestion and bleeding. This ever-expanding technology allows us to manage many other conditions.
At Samaritan Endoscopy Center, we offer a patient-focused environment with an emphasis on comfort, safety and thoroughness.
