Saint Luke’s G. I. Diagnostics LLC. is a state licensed, Medicare certified facility, accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The endoscopy center opened in April 1991 with the goal to provide patients with a safe, convenient, cost effective and compassionate atmosphere that focuses on individual needs for their gastrointestinal procedures.
Our facility has two state-of-the-art endoscopy suites. Both are fully equipped with the latest technology in endoscopic and patient monitoring equipment.
We use a form of anesthesia called conscious sedation. Conscious sedation allows your procedure to be painless and safe without a total loss of consciousness. The patient is comfortable throughout the procedure and has a relatively brief recovery time. All anesthesia services are provided by Plaza Anesthesia, P.C., which has been providing excellent patient care for over 10 years.
Following the procedure, patients will be monitored for approximately 45 minutes in our recovery area. A family member or friend must come with the patient to drive them home. When discharged, patients receive written instructions for any follow-up care recommended by the physician.
We call all patients the day following their procedure to check on their condition. Our staff will ask about your experience at our endoscopy center and inquire if you had any problems or questions. If we are unable to reach you by phone, a message will be left for you to call our office or we will send a card by mail to you. Your post-procedure feedback is important to us.
Our clinical staff has been extensively trained to assist with procedures, and is trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). They continue their professional growth and education as members of the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA) organization.
