For Your Visit
Appointments are made by our physicians’ secretaries at a time convenient for you. We will make every effort to maintain a concise schedule, but since procedure times vary, delays may occasionally occur. Endoscopy instructions will be provided at the time of your initial office visit. If you have any questions concerning your endoscopy procedure after 3 p.m. on weekdays or on weekends, please call our main office number at (858) 453-5200 to reach your physician.
