Gastroenterology

Using powerful technology, our gastroenterologists diagnose illness and perform minimally invasive surgical procedures that help prevent life-threatening cancer. We also provide around-the-clock emergency endoscopy services at our Emergency Departments across Berkshire County.

Colonoscopy

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, however if discovered early, it is both “treatable and beatable.”

Recommended for anyone over the age of 45, colonoscopies are critical to help prevent or detect early-stage colon cancer. Individuals who are at higher risk may require more frequent screening starting at an earlier age. Talk to your primary care provider to determine if you are at high risk.
