Our practice utilizes the services of experienced and highly trained mid-level physician extenders. These providers include Physician Assistants and Advanced Nurse Practitioners.

Our Physician Assistants (PA) and our Advanced Practice Nurses (APN) are licensed and hold national certification to practice medicine under the supervision of our board certified gastroenterologists. They conduct physical examinations, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret testing and counsel patients. Many also have prescriptive authority. These Physician Extenders work very closely with our physicians in providing both hospital and office care.

Our physicians have found that utilizing these types of providers allow our practice to expedite patient care and follow-up on chronic GI problems more efficiently.
