I always feel like Dr. Emmett does a good and thorough job, and his procedures are great. He goes above and beyond in everything.

Dr Shah, was so personable, kind and caring I was so impressed would highly recommend him for your care needs.
Awesome Doctor and staff. Felt comfortable throughout my office visit and procedure. Highly recommend!
Second colonoscopy with Dr. Shea and no complaints this time either. On the contrary, he is always open to explain and make me feel at ease. This one was even smoother than the first one. Highly recommended.

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.
