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. 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, our group has utilized an evidence-based practice approach to establish a standard of excellence to patients with digestive and liver diseases. Our physicians are board certified gastroenterology specialists. Each physician maintains expertise in performing gastroenterology procedures with continuing education, training and membership in professional organizations. GAP physicians are committed to providing consistently safe, efficient and effective procedures. They work with each other and communicate with your primary care physician to determine the best course of action for your condition, from initial diagnosis to treatment and follow-up care. 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.
