Why should you choose a colorectal surgeon?

 

Why should you choose a colorectal surgeon?

Colorectal surgeons specialize in the treatment of the colon, rectum, and anus. After completing a full general surgery residency, colorectal surgeons take an extra year of specialty training to focus on new, minimally-invasive surgical techniques, proctology and colonoscopy. Dr. Azimuddin and Dr. Raphaeli are both board-certified Colorectal Surgeons and have completed this extensive training. You can trust us with your most personal problems.

Don’t let your health take a back seat

Don’t let your health take a back seat this winter. Most screening colonoscopies require no copay or deductible. Give yourself the gift of peace of mind for the holidays. http://goo.gl/RHi7py
