Project Description

Colon Cancer Prevention

Protect yourself from colon and other GI cancers by scheduling your colonoscopy today.


Our gastrointestinal services are designed to prevent colon cancer and other chronic diseases.

Our goal is to identify patients at an increased risk of GI related diseases including colon, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, and liver cancer, and provide a reasonable strategy for prevention and early detection. We offer a number of tools to determine an individual’s risk of cancer and assess for other major diseases. We offer a broad range of tests that have the potential to uncover early cancers and markers of disease. Following a review of your results, an individualized plan for health will be provided.
