Gastro Associates monitors nationally-recognized physician quality indicators at the Pasadena Endoscopy Center such as polyp detection rates, scope withdrawal times and complications and use these results to ensure a level of care that is better than national standard. Many hospitals and endoscopy centers do not monitor these results and have no oversight into the quality of their services. We also participate in the many quality assessment/feedback programs of Physicians Associates and Healthcare Partners Medical Groups, which includes Patient Satisfaction, Peer Satisfaction, Care Efficiency and other useful feedback about us, our staff, our service quality and our results.
