Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bigornia "We aim to provide the highest quality of compassionate medical care and perform endoscopies in a convenient, friendly, non-threatening office setting. We serve patients from many different backgrounds which is mirrored in the diversity of our physicians.

Our secondary goal is to educate our patients by providing a resource for diets, bowel preps, colon cancer screening and general information about common gastrointestinal conditions and procedures.

We strive to improve communications with our patients. You can request appointments or leave non-medical requests via e-mail which will be answered by staff within 48 hours.  We also have a secure HIPPA compliant patient portal that allows for non-emergent routine communications with our physicians and office staff and ability to access patient medical records. "
