The Doctors at GI Associates are what set us apart. All of our physicians are board certified in Gastroenterology, having accumulated at least six years of training after medical school. The gastroenterology training experience is more intense than that undertaken by general surgeons, internists, or family practioners who decide to add endoscopy to their practices. Our physicians are trained to interpret and treat the conditions they identify while upholding the safest level of endoscopy. Our doctors stay on top of their field by participating in current research and continuing to publish. See Current Publications.
The physicians who make up GI Associates have been trained all over the United States and this diversity allows our physicians quick access to multiple sources of expertise, high level consultations and opinions without having to leave central Mississippi. This expertise and extensive training is not always present in hospital based endoscopy, as many of the physicians there may not be board certified or may not have extensive training in gastroenterology. Recent studies show that procedures done by non-gastroenterologists are not as accurate and have a higher "miss" rate.
