Other outpatient services we provide:

    • Surgery/procedure instruction and preparation, including patient interview, clinical evaluation and testing (blood work, EKG, X-ray).
    • During cardiac catheterization (cardiac cath or heart cath), we insert a thin, hollow tube into a blood vessel that leads to your heart and examine your heart muscle, valves or coronary arteries for disease.
    • During capsule endoscopy, you swallow a capsule that takes pictures down through your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This aids diagnosis of chronic anemia and occult GI bleeding. Other GI procedures include: treating ulcers, esophageal strictures and swollen veins; removal of lower GI polyps and biopsy. 
  • Administration of IV fluids and medicine, blood transfusion and special lab testing.
  • Esophageal motility and ph studies to help diagnose and treat esophageal disorders and associated gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
