Gastroenterology Associates of the Piedmont, P.A. consists of two of the leading and longest established gastroenterology practices in the Piedmont Triad. Salem Gastroenterology Associates, established in 1979, and Piedmont Gastroenterology Specialists, established in 1957, merged in 2013 to form what is known as “GAP.” Together, offering some of the most respected physician names in the Piedmont Triad community, our group has established a standard of excellence to patients with digestive and liver diseases. These patients choose us not only for an exceptional level of service, but for our patient-centered approach to the delivery of the best care possible.
GAP evaluates new patients, performs consultations and conducts follow-up visits for chronic gastrointestinal conditions. Our offices draw and assess labs, administer injections and monitor medication therapies. When appropriate, GAP schedules appointments for outpatient screening, diagnostic and/or treatment procedures. The state-of-the-art equipment and sedation practices we use for our procedures safely provide patients with a more personal, convenient and comfortable and compassionate alternative than the typical procedure experience in a hospital setting.
Both of our clinics are recognized at the highest level by the National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA), and our endoscopy centers are accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC). This demonstrates that we have met nationally recognized standards for efficient, cost-effective, high quality healthcare.
Our mission at GAP is to provide compassionate, patient-centered care in gastroenterology and hepatology in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Our values of teamwork, transparency and communication allow us to deliver high quality consultative services to both our patients and referring providers.
