Gastroenterology Associates of Columbus, P.A. is committed to providing patients with convenient access to high-quality care. We believe that providing high-quality care is not only about the medical advice that we dispense, but more importantly about the relationships we have with our patients.

Each year more than 140,000 people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, often referred to as colon cancer, in the U.S. and over 50,000 people die from it annually. The disease, however, is largely preventable with regular screening and is treatable with early detection. If you are over 50 or have a family history of colorectal cancer, call us about getting screened today. Screening saves lives.
