Colorectal Cancer Screening

A colonoscopy can keep you at peak performance. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in the United States. The disease often grows with no symptoms until it’s at an advanced stage. But when detected in its earliest stages, colorectal cancer is treatable. Colonoscopy is recommended for both men and women when they reach the age of 50.

Acidez estomacal y centro de reflujo ácido

The Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center (HARC) provides an individualized, multidisciplinary approach to evaluate and understand each patient with GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and other esophageal disorders.

GERD is a chronic digestive disease caused by weakening of the gastroesophageal sphincter. This allows stomach acid and other contents to reflux back into the esophagus, mouth, or wind pipe. GERD can cause heartburn and many other symptoms. Over time, it can lead to complications including esophagitis, respiratory diseases, Barrett’s esophagus, and even esophageal cancer. GERD can have a significant impact on quality of life.
