The new Crozer Medical Plaza and Crozer-Keystone Cancer Center at Brinton Lake that opened in December of 2011 features gastroenterology services as well as the state-of-the-art Crozer Endoscopy Center at Brinton Lake.
“We’ve expanded our availability, with physicians onsite five days a week,” says Michael Farber, M.D., medical director of the Center and a member of Crozer Gastroenterology Associates. “We have multiple physicians and a nurse practitioner to expedite the scheduling of consultations and follow up with patients.”
The practice treats a wide range of GI and pancreatic disorders, including functional bowel disorders, liver disease, acid-peptic conditions, inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal malignancies.
The high-definition Crozer Endoscopy Center at Brinton offers a range of services. “We offer upper endoscopy, small-capsule endoscopy of the intestine and colonoscopy in the new facility with a state-of-the-art lab,” Farber says.
The building, which Farber says has been designed with patient and family comfort in mind, is open Monday through Friday and features private patient pre and post-op rooms for a discreet experience.
“We have the latest equipment for monitoring anesthesia so patients can tolerate the procedure safely, without discomfort, and go home and resume their regular activities,” says Ruth Dombkoski, M.D., who oversees anesthesia in the Endoscopy Center. “It’s a beautiful facility, and it’s very exciting to watch it open and become a resource for the community. There’s nothing quite like it nearby, and we hope people will come and take advantage of our offerings.”
The new facility is located at 500 Evergreen Drive in Glen Mills.
Crozer-Keystone offers a range of board-certified physicians who are trained in the latest technologies and procedures to comprehensively diagnose, manage and treat gastrointestinal and liver conditions. In addition to Brinton Lake, Crozer-Keystone offers state-of-the-art endoscopy labs at four other locations: Crozer-Chester Medical Cetner, Delaware County Memorial Hospital, Springfield Hospital and Taylor Hospital.
