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

Our goal is to identify patients at an increased risk of cancer and provide a reasonable strategy for prevention and early detection. We offer a number of tools to determine an individual’s risk of gastrointestinal cancer including: esophagus, stomach, pancreas, colon and liver cancer. 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.
