Avamar Center for Endoscopy is dedicated to the community to provide consistent high quality care in an efficient and cost conscious manner. We believe such services must be provided in an environment which emphasizes privacy, safety, patient dignity and confidentiality


On June 2, 2013, the New York Times published an article: Colonoscopies Explain Why U.S. Leads the World in Health Expenditures - NYTimes.com. The author chose colonoscopy as a case study. Facts are misrepresented and the article seems like a veiled preparation for the anticipated rationing of medical services in the context of the Affordable Care Act. Since then other articles have appeared, in the Washington Post and USA Today, denouncing payments to physicians for procedures such as colonoscopy.

The public should be informed of the true cost of healthcare and the value private medicine brings. Failure to respond allows the New York Times and others to dominate the conversation.
