In addition to specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal and digestive disorders, the practice offers important health maintenance roles such as colon cancer screening. The key to beating colon cancer is early detection, so we encourage everyone 50 years of age or older to get a colonoscopy.

Save the time and expense of an office visit prior to your colonoscopy by taking advantage of our Open Access Colonoscopy program. All it will take is 10 minutes to schedule a potentially life-saving procedure that can save you from colon cancer. You can learn more about this program by visiting the Open Access Colonoscopy page on our website or by calling us directly at 972-867-0019, and we would be happy to help!
