Summerville Endoscopy Center
Charleston GI is proud to announce that its Summerville Endoscopy Center is the first of its kind in Dorchester County. Until now, there has been no free-standing endoscopy center within the county that is owned and operated by independent physicians who are board certified in gastroenterology. This brand new, state of the art facility will provide a more convenient, lower cost option for outpatient endoscopies to the Summerville area as well as surrounding counties.
Combined, Charleston GI physicians have over 100 years of GI experience. They believe in offering the highest level of service and patient care. In 2016, Charleston GI received more than 13,000 patients and performed nearly 13,000 colonoscopies out of more than 20,000 procedures. Of those seen, 49 patients were diagnosed with cancers of the colon, and 3,728 patients had pre-cancerous polyps removed.
Charleston Gastroenterology Specialists, Charleston Endoscopy Center and Summerville Endoscopy Center are dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases affecting the digestive system. Charleston GI’s Open Access Colonoscopy Program allows patients without significant gastrointestinal symptoms or other health risk factors to schedule a colonoscopy without a preliminary visit prior to the procedure. Charleston GI is the first and largest gastroenterology practice in the lowcountry to operate a physicians practice and two nationally certified and state licensed endoscopy centers.
Summerville Endoscopy Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC) and certified by Medicare. Our procedure rooms meet or exceed the same rigorous standards imposed on major hospitals.
