We specialize in a full range of GI diseases and conditions along with our ongoing commitment to the prevention and treatment of colon cancer. As part of our comprehensive services we offer our outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Center, Arizona Digestive Center (ADC) and take great pride in our CLIA certified anatomic pathology laboratory.
ADC has been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), www.AAAHC.org, the nation's leading accrediting organization for outpatient ambulatory facilities.

Our top priority is your health and we are here to ensure the highest quality of expert care and treatment for your GI diseases and conditions. In our commitment to the prevention of colon cancer we offer our patients a "Single Visit Colonoscopy". We know that a Screening Colonoscopy Saves Lives. With the option of a Single Visit Colonoscopy patients and referring physicians may call our office to schedule their procedure and for most patients, no prior consultation is required with our physician. Our office will call patients with instructions to prepare for their procedure.
