I've been seeing Dr Joseph for many years and incredibly happy with my care. I feel great and appreciate the attentiveness of him and his nurse, Shauna Sherman.
My experience was positive and professional and the follow-through by Dr. Woerlien and his staff was remarkable. I would not hesitate to recommend this office and Dr.
We really appreciate all the experience of Dr. Bown and those in the Endoscopy/Colonoscopy Surgical center
Eleven years ago I had a colonoscopy in Vegas, and I said never again. A health issue necessitated that I have another one last month. My regular doc referred me to Utah Gastro, St, George. It was a completely different experience. Quick, efficient, yet I was patiently given all the information I needed before and after the procedure. A prompt follow up letter explained the biopsy finding and advised a moderate treatment. Wow. Even the prep was much easier than the first time.

A colonoscopy serves to detect and prevent cancer as it identifies over 95% of dangerous, precancerous polyps and removes them at the time of the procedure. It can also enable the capture of tissue samples for pathology testing to determine more accurately if cancerous cells are present. As a result, colonoscopies are far more conclusive and provide preventative measures by removing polyps identified in the colon. Therefore, a colonoscopy is considered the gold standard for colorectal cancer detection and prevention.
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis, affect approximately 1.6 million Americans. Many IBD patients are diagnosed before the age of 35. In fact, 80,000 children in the US are diagnosed with IBD. And approximately 70,000 new cases of IBD among adults and children are diagnosed each year. These chronic, life-long conditions can be treated but not cured.
