When selecting a GI doctor for a procedure, there’s no substitute for quality. Our Nashville-area gastroenterologists have expertise in colonoscopies, endoscopies and other GI procedures.
When choosing a GI doctor for your screening colonoscopy, there are two qualifying criteria: adenoma detection rate (ADR) and cecal intubation rate. As one of Middle Tennessee’s premier GI specialty centers, Associated Endoscopy is proud to share its GIQuIC quality measures.
The national average ADR is 25 percent for men and 15 percent for women. Our gastroenterologists have an overall average ADR of 30.88 percent. This exceeds the national average by over 10 percent and surpasses many GI specialists in the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area. Our gastroenterologists also have an average cecal intubation rate of 98.5 percent, compared to the national average of 90 percent.
The specialist who referred you to our GI center, as well as most of the GI doctors who perform procedures here, are also part owners of the center. You have other choices, and we will be very happy to discuss those alternatives with you. Just call us at (615) 541-1600.
