A healthy and well-functioning digestive tract is important for your overall health – and it’s our job to make sure yours is as healthy as can be.


An endoscopy is a common, non-surgical procedure that closely examines a person’s digestive tract. It can diagnose a variety of issues, including:

  • Stomach pain
  • Ulcers
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Digestive tract bleeding
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Colon cancer and other digestive tract cancers

The importance of endoscopic screenings

Colon and rectal cancers are the fourth most diagnosed cancers in the United States and second leading causes of death from cancer – but colon cancer can be quickly and easily diagnosed with regular screenings.

If you are 50 or older, call our offices or talk to your primary care doctor about getting tested, even if you don’t have any symptoms. To learn more, check out the American Cancer Society 2017-2019 Colorectal Cancer Facts and Figures.

To schedule an appointment, please call (602) 344-5831. You may also send a fax to (602) 344-1314. Be prepared to provide referrals and clinical notes with recent labs if referred from outside Valleywise Health.
