Northside Endoscopy Center

Northside Gastroenterology Endoscopy Center - a licensed ambulatory surgical center dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of digestive disorders - opened its doors in the spring of 1996. Recognized as a leading provider of outpatient endoscopic procedures in our area, Northside Gastroenterology Endoscopy Center is located on the west side of St. Vincent Hospital which is located on the north side of Indianapolis. From our original 3500 square feet, three procedure rooms and seven beds, we have grown to our current size of over 5200 square feet, four procedure rooms and fourteen beds.

Our Procedures:
* Colonoscopy
* Upper Endoscopy

* Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

* Capsule Endoscopy

* Endoscopic Retrograde
* Cholangiopancreatography   (ERCP)
* Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

* Liver Biopsies

The exceptional relationship among all members of our healthcare team is evidenced by the glowing feedback from patient satisfaction surveys: "You all seem to work well together", "What a team" or "I dreaded having this procedure done, but you made it almost fun!" Recent feedback, from our referring physician offices, tells us that their patients are grateful for a pleasant atmosphere and staff to have a potentially unpleasant procedure.
Dr. Daryl Daugherty, Medical Director, states: "Opening an ambulatory endoscopy center has allowed our doctors and nurses to be more effective in the care of our patients and our doctors to be more productive within our office practice. Our staff is highly motivated toward meeting both patient and family needs. The overall experience tends to be more 'people oriented'. Opening our own ambulatory endoscopy center has provided our patients with convenient, personal and high quality service."

State and Medicare certified, Northside Gastroenterology Endoscopy Center has taken one step further and has been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care beginning in 1998. The highest period of accreditation attainable is three (3) years, and we are proud to announce we have received three (3) years accreditation with commendations each time since 1998. The last survey occurred in 2007.

Galinton C. Bryan, our Executive Director, says: "Our vision was to create a center of excellence that would exceed our patients' expectations and maintain the satisfaction and trust of our referring physicians. With state of the art equipment and a caring and committed staff, we are able to provide that level of excellence."
