Who We Are
As of January 1, 2017, Asheville Gastroenterology Associates (AGA) has merged with Carolina Mountain Gastroenterology (CMG) in Hendersonville to become a division of DIGESTIVE HEALTH PARTNERS, PA (DHP). The physicians and staff of both DHP-Asheville and DHP-Hendersonville are committed to providing the highest quality and most comprehensive healthcare in the field of digestive diseases. All of our providers work together in a collaborative approach and use the most up-to-date technologies and treatments to meet your digestive healthcare needs. Our highly skilled medical and administrative staff is committed to your well-being by fostering an environment intended to provide comfort and convenience to our patients and their families.
DHP-A is comprised of 17 Board Certified Gastroenterologists/8 Mid-Level Providers and DHP-H has 5 Board Certified Gastroenterologists/3 Mid-Level Providers all specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gastrointestinal conditions in adults. As one of the largest specialty practices of its kind, DHP provides consultative and procedural services spanning the full spectrum of clinical gastroenterology and Hepatology.
Your primary physician treats your routine health care needs and refers you to medical specialists for consultation when needed. Our gastroenterology providers work as a consultant to your doctor and will transmit any advice as well as the results of your tests or procedures directly back to your doctor. You may also be directly notified of any results, as well, especially if additional testing or treatment is needed. Ultimately, your doctor will continue to coordinate your healthcare, in conjunction with AGA when necessary.
Be involved in your healthcare by being prepared with any specific questions, bringing a list of current medications, as well as up-to-date insurance information. If you are scheduled for a clinic appointment, please check with your doctor’s office to make sure they have sent all pertinent medical information to our office prior to your visit. If you are scheduled for a diagnostic exam, follow all preparation instructions completely so that the procedure will be successful and will not need to be rescheduled or repeated.
