GANJ is happy to say its physicians belong to some of the most prestigious gastroenterological groups in the country: AMA (American Medical Association), ASGE (American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy) AGA (American Gastroenterological Association) and ACG (American College of Gastroenterology) to name a few. Each and every group is dedicated to the advancement of patient care through their incredible research teams and physician base that encompasses some of the most advanced medical practices in the country.
We here at GANJ stand close by these organizations and share educational information to our patients from these sites through our social media. Our busiest month regarding social media is March’s Colon Cancer Awareness. The third most common cancer in the United States, colon cancer is easily preventable with simple tests starting at the age of 50. Some of the most important information, in the form of tool-kits, can be found on the websites of groups mentioned above. GANJ physician Dr. Joseph Shami loves to share the educational posters provided to him by ACG and ASGE and hang them up around his office. A link can be found at the bottom of this article taking you directly to ACG’s colon cancer awareness tool-kit.
These groups encourage getting involved in the community to spread awareness to a variety of digestive issues, not just colon cancer. IBS awareness month features a slew of walks, presentations, and community events we encourage our patients to participate in. Conferences and tips are also given to medical groups helping them grow their practice and treat patients effectively. All in all, patient satisfaction is key, and our highly trained staff at GANJ is extra equipped for the task, and you, the patient can feel you are in safe hands.
