Our Mission is to provide the highest quality, most cost-efficient gastroenterology services to our patients.
To accomplish this goal, we will have physicians of unsurpassed ability, an endoscopy center equipped with the finest state-of-the-art equipment, a clinical staff delivering the highest quality care in a comfortable, safe, and confidential environment; and an office staff who will offer helpful and compassionate services with patient satisfaction as their first priority.
All of the physicians at the Memphis Gastroenterology Group are Board-certified in Gastroenterology. After completing college and four years of medical school, each of our physicians has had at least five additional years of training. They also update their knowledge each year by taking specialized training and through attending professional meetings as well as through independent reading. In fact, our physicians are frequently the teachers of other physicians at medical courses held across the country.
A complete gastrointestinal evaluation usually includes specialized studies in addition to a thorough interview and physical examination. X-rays (barium studies of the digestive system) may be ordered and reviewed as indicated. Endoscopy (procedure using a flexible lighted instrument to inspect the lining of the digestive tract) might also be suggested.
If another physician referred you to our office, a summary of our findings and recommendations will be sent to him or her at the completion of your evaluation. Unless your condition requires our continued care, your personal physician will carry out the treatment plan. In addition, problems of a general medical nature should remain under the care of your personal physician. It is necessary for you to have a general medical doctor, as our group limits its diagnosis and treatment to diseases of the digestive system.
