For Referring Physicians
The Digestive Disease Center recognizes the trust you have placed in us by referring your valued patients to our practice.
We appreciate the dedication you have to your patients, and we vow to carry that dedication forward as we continually care for their digestive health. We look forward to developing a long-term relationship with you and your patients.
Why you should refer to the Digestive Disease Center
We encourage you to keep in mind the following information when deciding where to refer your patients for Gastroenterology care:
- The Digestive Disease Center is the only Gastroenterology group in the region where every physician is board-certified in Gastroenterology.
- Our team includes the only two female Gastroenterologists in the Mid-Hudson Valley—both of whom are quite desirable and popular with female patients.
- Our team includes three Family Nurse Practitioners, who further ensure that patients receive the follow-up care and education they need. This allows those patients with less urgent needs to be seen regularly. This, in turn, allows our physicians to see those patients with more serious issues immediately.
- Our adenoma (cancerous polyp) detection rate is higher than the national average. So, you can feel comfortable in referring your patients to us for endoscopic procedures.
The Patients Have Spoken
Hudson Valley Endoscopy Center in Fishkill, NY, offers patients an accredited facility with the most advanced diagnostic technology in the region—in a warm, patient-friendly environment. It is the region’s only free-standing, state-of-the-art, ambulatory Surgery Center that is completely dedicated to Endoscopic procedures. HVEC was the first healthcare facility in the Mid-Hudson Valley to bring narrow band imaging (NBI) to the region and make it available to each and every patient, resulting in the detection of more flat polyps than those without this advanced technology.
It’s no wonder that the patient satisfaction rate for Hudson Valley Endoscopy Center is over 99%. Our patients are happy, and you will be too.
