GI Alliance Expands Presence into the Texas Panhandle


GI Alliance, the nation’s leading physician-led GI services organization, is excited to announce its recent partnership with Amarillo Endoscopy Center (AEC). The physicians at AEC established their facility in 2001, upon the principles of delivering high-quality care, value, and convenience for their patients. “GI Alliance is thrilled to have the physicians and staff at Amarillo Endoscopy Center join our network of like-minded practices. Although we have a built a significant presence in Texas, this is our first group to come on board from the Texas Panhandle,” said Dr. Jim Weber, CEO of GI Alliance. “Whether we are expanding within our home state, or outside of those boundaries into other regions across the country, each new group allows us to further the delivery of high-quality care to patients in both urban and rural areas, and enables us to support physicians who are looking to the GI Alliance for our infrastructure, experience, and growth.” “We were excited to find a partner that can help us get a seat at the table,” said Srinivas Pathapati, M.D., of AEC. “GI Alliance allows us to maintain our autonomy within our clinical practice, yet they provide significant enhancements in regards to operational support.” Amit K. Trehan, M.D. stated, “GI Alliance has created a patient-first culture, with access to best-in-class systems and processes. Considering our small size, we knew that the most optimal way to continue providing industry-leading care for the next generation of patients would be to partner with the talented physician and leadership teams at GI Alliance.”
