Our Colon Screenings Help Save Lives
Routine colon screenings can help to save lives by catching potential cancer in the early stages. If you’re over age 50 or have a family history of colon cancer, these screenings are vital in checking for polyps that may indicate cancer. The sooner we discover these problems, the better the chances for you to enjoy a normal lifespan. We encourage our patients to undergo routine colonoscopies, as they are simple and easy and could potentially save your life. Please reach out to us to learn more about what to expect during this procedure or to schedule an appointment.
On-Site Imaging Services
In order to properly diagnose and treat many gastrointestinal concerns, our doctors must use various imaging equipment, like ultrasounds or fibroscans. These scans are the perfect way to determine what is going on inside your body, without the need for invasive methods. Many doctor’s offices are not equipped with this technology, forcing you to go to yet another provider. GI Specialists of Georiga eliminates the need for visiting multiple clinics, as we offer on-site imaging services for our patients. Our fibroscan services can be used with patients who have fatty deposits on the liver to determine how much fibrosis or scarring is present and to calculate the amount of fat in your liver.
Pathology Lab Services
Pathology lab tests are another vital tool used by our doctors to diagnose conditions and track progress after treatments. At GI Specialists of Georgia, we have an on-site pathology lab to complete these tests, ensuring they can be completed quicker. Our on-site pathology department also helps to facilitate communication between your doctor and the lab staff because they are located in the same office. Our lab is licensed by the state of Georgia and has also earned accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
We Can Help You Find Relief from Inflammatory Bowel Disease
There are two conditions that are classified as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and both require proper monitoring and treatment by your doctor. These conditions not only produce unpleasant symptoms but can also put your digestive health at risk. We have a team of doctors who can properly diagnose your IBD condition and provide the appropriate treatment to help you manage your condition. You can count on our team of experienced doctors to provide the care you need.
At GI Specialists of Georgia, we understand that it can be difficult or inconvenient for some patients to visit our office. For this reason, we offer telehealth appointments so that you can manage your healthcare services remotely. Our telehealth portal makes our services more accessible and convenient, giving patients the opportunity to receive care from our specialists without having to travel to our offices. Our virtual appointments are the perfect option for patients who live further away or who may have mobility concerns that make it harder for them to get to appointments.
