When selecting a GI doctor for a procedure, there’s no substitute for quality. Our New Orleans-area gastroenterologists have expertise in colonoscopies, endoscopies and other GI procedures.
When choosing a GI doctor for your screening colonoscopy, you’ll want a physician with a high adenoma detection rate (ADR). ADR refers to the percentage of patients in whom a GI doctor detects one or more adenomas in screening colonoscopies. Choosing an MGA physician with a high ADR lowers your risk of colon cancer. The national average ADR is 25 percent for men and 15 percent for women. Our gastroenterologists have an overall average ADR of 39.49 percent. This exceeds the national average by over 19 percent and surpasses many GI specialists in the New Orleans area.
The specialist who referred you to our GI center, as well as most of the GI doctors who perform procedures here, are also part owners of the center. You have other choices, and we will be very happy to discuss those alternatives with you. Just call us at (504) 323-0407.
