We practice in the best hospital systems throughout the state of Florida, that staff with highly trained personnel. At these hospitals, our patients receive the premier care they deserve and that we expect them to receive.Read more

Dr. Etzkorn says...

Annually, our physicians, and staff provide care to almost 105,000 patients with digestive disorders and conditions that include Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Liver disease including Hepatitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Reflux Acid Disease, and Esophageal Disorders.

Dr. Etzkorn says...

Borland-Groover Clinic physicians perform more than 43,000 colonoscopies a year, a procedure used to screen for cancer and polyps. Every BGC physician performs at minimum of 720 colonoscopies each year, with many performing more than 1,200 procedures annually.

Studies have shown that gastroenterologists perform higher quality colonoscopy screenings when compared to other types of physicians.

At Borland-Groover Clinic, the work our physicians participate in through research is truly the foundation for excellence in healthcare, and is an investment in future medical advancements. Patients that participate in our clinical trials are the first to receive new medications and or therapies for many GI diseases. Our physicians are active clinical investigators who perform individual research projects and authored papers that are presented or published via gastroenterology national societies.
