16 Oct Convenience at its Core: Exploring Three Accessible Locations for Patient’s Needs
Patients who suffer from constipation, acid reflux, abdominal bloating, abdominal distension, or need to have a screening for colon cancer, Gastroenterology of Westchester, LLC, will undoubtably serve them well throughout their three, easily accessible locations. From Yonkers to Bronxville to Harrison, the clinics are dotted across New York to ensure patients have no trouble finding them.
It isn’t just the number of patients they serve that prompted their creation of three separate sites: it’s also the company’s commitment to excellent patient care. The practitioners upholding these values understand that patients need convenience when treating their otherwise stressful conditions. And with the advent of three locations, that’s exactly what they provide.
Services Offered at the Bronxville, Yonkers, and Harrison Gastroenterology of Westchester Facilities
The experienced, highly trained staff members and physicians offer a wide range of services within the nurturing, comforting walls. They’re able to answer any questions their patients have and always create individual treatment plans to meet specific, personalized needs.
The general services provided at the three locations range from management to diagnosis to treatment of various GI conditions, like chronic pancreatitis, constipation, acute pancreatitis, liver diseases, diverticulosis, and more. As for the certain procedures, they include:
- Colonoscopy — This procedure tests for abnormalities in the large intestine and rectum by using a flexible fiberoptic camera that enters the rectum and travels through the colon. Typically, the doctors will recommend the procedure to investigate symptoms like rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, changes in bowel movements, and to screen for colon cancer.
- Upper endoscopy — It’s a procedure wherein a long, flexible tube with an attached camera is put through the patient’s esophagus, stomach, and the small intestine, allowing the doctors to look at the digestive tract to diagnose various gastrointestinal disorders.
- Hemorrhoid banding — Otherwise known as rubber band ligation, it’s a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment method for internal hemorrhoids. The qualified doctors will insert a viewing instrument into the anus to find the hemorrhoid before placing a rubber band at its base.
Location in Yonkers, New York, Open on Saturdays
The three locations are open 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday and generally closed on Saturday and Sunday. However, that is no longer the case for the Yonkers, New York, location, which is now opening its doors every second Saturday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm for the procedures listed above. The facility is keeping its weekday opening times the same.
Finding Comfort in the Accessibility of the Clinics and Experience of the Team
The team, headed by the extraordinary Dr. Jose Lantin, who has the privilege to admit patients to St. John’s Riverside Hospital if needed, is backed by years of experience. Couple that with the straightforward accessibility of the facilities, and patients are sure to have a smooth time from the get-go.
New patients can find the registration forms on the website to expedite their initial visit.
