Ambulatory Surgery Center
In seeking to provide enhanced services to our patients with a cost effective outlet, our physicians formed a separate entity in 1995; San Antonio Digestive Disease Consultants Endoscopy Center.
Our Ambulatory Surgery Center is dedicated to performing most of the procedures that were previously performed in an Inpatient Hospital setting but with a superior approach that provides the convenience of outpatient scheduling that is cost effective for the patients and their insurance carriers.
Since 1997, The Joint Commission in Healthcare Accreditation has accredited our Ambulatory Surgery Center. This accreditation guarantees that the highest quality of endoscopic surgery will be provided to you, our patient. The doctors and staff pride themselves in maintaining excellent standards for patient care and have an active quality improvement program in place.
The Endoscopy Center is located in the same building as our main clinic which is located at 1804 NE Loop 410. In most cases, a procedure can be scheduled within a few a days of the initial consultation. Our dedicated Endoscopy Center staff will work with your insurance carrier prior to your procedure in order to obtain all the required authorizations and benefits coverage.
