Austin Gastroenterology evolved from two individual private practices. Austin Gastroenterology Associates (AGA), PA, the first GI practice in Austin, was established in 1980 with two physicians: William Gamel, MD (retired) and George Willeford III, MD. AGA grew to include Craig Lubin, MD; Rashad E. Dabaghi, MD; Richard M. Sperling, MD; and Robert Frachtman, MD.
In April 1998, AGA merged with Becker, Rice & Utts, PA (Scott D. Becker, MD; Dan Rice, MD; and Stephen J. Utts, MD) to form Austin Gastroenterology Associates, PLLC.
In January 2001, the group merged with Austin Digestive Disease Associates, PLLC (Frank Adams, DO; William Stassen, MD; Kenneth Ellis, MD; John Ziebert, MD; and Eduardo Alcocer, MD) to become the present-day form of the practice, Austin Gastroenterology, PA.
Since that time, Austin Gastroenterology has expanded to include 32 board-certified physicians and 26 mid-level providers who provide service to patients throughout north, central, and south Austin. AG now delivers care from 12 full-time offices, 6 part-time offices, and two endoscopy centers.
Our CEO, Bruce Levy, MD, JD, has led Austin Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Centers since 2001. He is a medical doctor, a board-certified anesthesiologist, and a graduate of the University of Houston Bates School of Law. Dr. Levy has served on state and national medical boards and has been honored by numerous medical associations — notably being named Physician of the Year in 2016 by the Travis County Medical Center.
