At Gastro Health of Washington, we treat a number of different digestive health issues, not the least of which is colon cancer. If you are worried about this disease because you've noticed some symptoms or you just want to follow the American Cancer Society's recommendation of getting screened at 45 years old, contact us about our colon cancer testing.

With quality health care becoming a growing concern for many, Adenoma Detection Rates are one approach to measuring quality in colonoscopy. These rates are meant to show the quality of care provided by determining how well the physician finds and removes growths or potentially precancerous polyps known as adenomas.

Screening colonoscopies where one or more adenomas are detected and removed reduces a patient’s possibility of developing colon cancer.

From October 1, 2019, to September 30, 2021, the rates of adenoma precancerous polyp detection (including serrated lesions) for the physicians at Gastro Health - Washington, were 60.37% for men and 49.06% for women. These figures are significantly higher than the national “high quality care” average as designated by The GI Quality Improvement Consortium (national benchmark for men was 49.82% and 37.64% for women).
