Experts in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases
Swallowing. Digestion. Elimination. You're hardly aware of the natural rhythms of your body's internal process. When something goes wrong with your digestive system, it greatly affects your quality of life.
Perhaps your family doctor has referred you to Lancaster Gastroenterology, Inc. (LGI) for persistent heartburn or bowel problems. It could be time to take advantage of colonoscopy-a pain-free procedure that can stop colon cancer before it starts. Whatever the reason, you need the expertise of a skilled and compassionate board-certified gastroenterologist.
LGI physicians are board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. Several have been granted the prestigious title of "Fellow" from the nation's top physician associations for outstanding contributions in research, teaching, and other clinical achievements.
Nationally Recognized Expertise
In U.S. News and World Report's 2009-10 publication of America's Best Hospitals, Lancaster General Hospital (LGH) was ranked 40th in the Digestive Disorders specialty. Only 174 of the 4,861 medical centers evaluated scored high enough to be included on any of the top 50 rankings across 16 specialties. LGH relies entirely on local private practices such as LGI for the expertise in digestive orders that was honored in this award. LGI is proud to have helped Lancaster General Hospital achieve this rating by providing excellent patient care as one of their gastroenterology providers.
