Patient Services

Although no two patients are the same, each patient's care will include some of the same basic steps: consultation, examination, tests and treatment. Tests or procedures—such as x-rays, blood work, or diagnostic procedures, such as a Colonoscopy or an Endoscopy—appropriate to your symptoms will be ordered.

 

Your physician will help you understand the nature of your disorder, your options for the most effective treatment and the appropriate course of treatment especially for you.
