ESOPHAGOGASTRODUODENOSCOPY, or EGD
An EGD is an examination of the esophagus, stomach, and first portion of the small intestine, known as the duodenum. This procedure is performed with a flexible instrument called an endoscope. An upper endoscopy is used to diagnose a number of conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract, including acid reflux, Barrett’s esophagus, hiatal hernia, and more.
ENDOSCOPIC EXAM of the large bowel
A colonoscopy is a procedure in which the lining of the colon is inspected with a flexible instrument called a colonoscope. Your physician can visualize the lining on a television monitor while you are comfortably sedated, and can use the finding of the procedure to help with diagnoses and treatment of a number of diseases affecting the colon.
I can’t say enough positive things about this practice. I’ve suffered from GI issues my entire life. I have been repeatedly subjected to the same useless, expensive diagnostics to no avail. Dr. An has done more to help me in 7 months than all of my other GI docs combined. Foremost, he listened. Actually listened to me which was a first. Then, he prescribed non-invasive testing (covered 100% by insurance) which I never knew was even an option. Upon my diagnosis, he prescribed a medication that was not covered by my insurance ($680 worth). My pharmacy called to break the news and told me she alerted Dr. An. Within an hour, I received a message saying they contacted my insurance and my prescription was now covered at 100%. I have never had a doctor take care of things so expeditiously. I am beyond grateful
I was very pleased from the start to the finished. Everyone was very good and i has total trust the whole time. I felt like I was treated special but I feel like everyone gets the same very good treatment.
I was really anxious before my procedure. The whole staff from check in to check out were very understanding and put me right at ease. The procedure was so easy and the team was very efficient!. I would highly recommend GI North, the staff, and Dr. Sergio Quijano to anyone needing a good GI practice
