Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Desautels "I became a physician for the simple reason that I wanted to do something for others and to make a difference in their lives. With disorders of the digestive tract, peoples lives are changed in a very fundamental way. These people have pain, discomfort, irregular habits, and a wide variety of symptoms that range from unpleasant and embarrassing to disruptive and debilitating. These are people who truly need help, and an improved quality of life. This is my motivation as a physician."

Dr. Desautels and the Staff at Granite Peaks provided exceptional service when my family & I have gone for my Colonoscopy. The first time, when I was 49, the day before the procedure I wanted to cancel and my husband helped me keep my appointment. I believe they saved my life. Thank you!
