GI SPECIFIC PATHOLOGY
LGEC offers superior diagnosis and evaluation of pathology specimens to our patients by utilizing the services of GI Pathology, a single-specialty pathology group, staffed entirely by fellowship trained Gastrointestional Pathologists. The ability of our physicians to get specific, definitive pathology reports eliminates the need for further testing to obtain a diagnosis, reducing cost to our insurance payors and our patients out-of-pocket expense.
Our goal at LGEC is to provide the highest quality sedation for endoscopy to our patients, with their safety and comfort being the top priorities. All sedation at LGEC is given by Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) under the direction of an Anesthesiologist (an MD with specialty in anesthesia). Having these specialized professionals in control of the administration and monitoring of sedation allows your gastroenterologist to concentrate all of his attention on your endoscopy procedure and any required therapeutic interventions.
COMMUNITY AWARENESS AND EDUCATION
LGEC utilizes marketing opportunities to increase community awareness on such vital topics as the value of screening colonoscopy in the prevention of colon cancer. Our physicians speak at various functions, meetings and conferences on the benefits of colon screening as an essential component of a wellness program
