2010 promises to be a challenging year for physicians and patients as healthcare reform debate intensifies. Whether you have private, employer-provided health insurance or Medicare you will likely be affected by the potential healthcare/health insurance changes currently being debated in congress.
Become an active participant in the discussion by educating yourself regarding the proposed changes to our nation’s medical system. Please know that we at Gateway Gastroenterology continue to support important health initiatives which we feel are in the best interests of our patients!

Gateway doctors specialize in gastrointestinal and liver diseases. Colon cancer is the #2 cause of cancer-related death, yet it is almost entirely preventable if adults begin routine screening at age 50. The physicians of Gateway Gastroenterology are dedicated to revolutionizing the field with their philosophy of A BETTER WAY.

Americans are anxiously watching healthcare reform debates. So are physicians!
The physicians of Gateway Gastroenterology feel strongly that patients should continue to have the opportunity to choose a physician and to choose where to receive medical care. After all, we as physicians help patients make difficult healthcare decisions regularly and we have found that patients make smart choices when presented with helpful data. To that end the physicians of Gateway Gastroenterology have teamed up with some of the major gastrointestinal societies (such as the ASGE) to advocate for our patient’s right to choose where to have a screening colonoscopy.

Taking a bowel preparation for colonoscopy is often difficult for patients. At Gateway Gastroenterology we do not want that fear to prevent patients from getting life saving colon cancer screening. Therefore, we have consulted with leading academic gastroenterologists to offer a bowel preparation that is more tolerable and yet still effective for colon cleansing. The Gatorade/Miralax bowel preparation is now our standard preparation for colonoscopy and one more reason to consider Gateway Gastroenterology for your screening colonoscopy.

It is hard to believe that the COVID-19 pandemic has been ongoing for nearly a year. To say that it has been life changing and disruptive is an understatement. During the pandemic it has been especially challenging to provide safe healthcare with "stay at home" restrictions and when information about infection transmission seemed to change by the day. Cancers and chronic conditions like crohn's and colitis continue despite the pandemic. In fact, there has been an increase in conditions like irritable bowel syndrome and GERD due to the stresses of the pandemic. The physicians and staff at Gateway Gastroenterology have continued to provide excellent care despite the challenges and are constantly updating policies and procedures for safe healthcare delivery.
