At Gateway we take pride in quality care as well as patient safety. An excellent bowel preparation for colonoscopy optimizes visualization and improves outcomes. Please follow the bowel preparation instructions exactly. Doing so helps us detect and remove polyps and enhances the safety of the procedure.

Gateway Gastroenterology’s international presence persists…thanks to the ongoing efforts of Dr. Jeffrey Mathews. This spring marks his third medical mission to Honduras. Hundreds of patients have been treated by Dr. Mathews and his team of healthcare providers. They continue to treat various conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease as well as H. pylori. The Honduran people are incredibly appreciative of the efforts and look forward to the St. Louis team’s visit each year.
The practice of medicine is changing significantly. From higher copays and costs to limited access for physician visits, both patients and physicians recognize the challenge of managing healthcare needs. Gateway physicians are proud to continue to be independent gastroenterologists. At Gateway we provide a concierge level of care without additional patient costs.
LPR is a growing clinical concern for patients and physicians. Symptoms negatively affect quality of life and are difficult to control. Typical symptoms include hoarseness, throat clearing, chronic cough, or the sense of something “caught” in the back of the throat. The physicians of Gateway Gastroenterology now offer simple in-office testing to determine if acid refux is contributing to those symptoms. Ask your Gateway physician about the Restech pH test to learn more.
