Philosophy of Care
Our goal is to provide optimal care and thereby enhance the quality of life for patients undergoing diagnostic or therapeutic endoscopy procedures and other treatments and investigations. This will be accomplished by members of a multi disciplinary health care team whose practice is governed by ethics and professional codes of conduct, the patients needs being the primary focus for all concerned.
