Goshen Health is recognized by the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) for high-quality, safe endoscopic care. Whether it's a colonoscopy or an upper endoscopy, these screenings and therapeutic procedures lower risk for developing cancers of the esophagus, stomach and colon. Learn more about this distinction.
At Goshen Health, we’re on a mission to start a movement around educating people about their risk of colorectal cancer. Take our Health Risk Assessment to determine your level of risk.
Where you get your colonoscopy makes a difference
Quality matters when it comes to colonoscopies. Our gastroenterology specialists are highly skilled in finding and safely removing polyps before they become cancerous. In fact, their adenoma detection rates (ADR) are above the national benchmark.
ADR is important because it reflects how carefully a doctor performs a colonoscopy. Recent studies1
have shown that for every one percent increase in ADR over the national average, your risk of colon cancer decreases by three percent. Risk of a fatal colon cancer occurring before your next colonoscopy also decreases by five percent.
