The amount of experience your doctor has treating certain conditions is a good indicator of results. In other words, the more experience, the better the results.
In 2008, Estrella Gastroenterology physicians provided routine and emergency care to more than 4000 patients with GI disorders and conditions.
Most studies report that health care providers who complete a high volume of procedures have better patient outcomes as well (Annals of Internal Medicine, Sept. 17, 2002). According to the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, a physician should perform at least 100 colonoscopies annually. All Estrella GI gastroenterologists perform about 600 colonoscopies annually each.
