State-of-the-Art Colonoscopy Care Now in Northampton County
Colon cancer screenings are a key part of preventive health care for all. This is more critical if you have a family history of the disease. And we get it –it’s a rite of passage no one loves to talk about. But when detected early through colonoscopy, colon cancer can be prevented.*
Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), in partnership with Eastern Pennsylvania Gastroenterology and Liver Specialists (EPGI), is now providing more convenient colonoscopy care for Northampton County residents at:
- Nazareth Endoscopy Center at the Health Center at Easton, 2401 Northampton St., Easton.
LVHN partners with EPGI because its team has expertise in colon cancer screening. EPGI’s physicians are fellowship trained and board certified, and along with their experienced support team, they specialize in upper and lower endoscopies, including screening and diagnostic colonoscopies.
In addition to Nazareth Endoscopy Center, EPGI’s other location, Eastern Pennsylvania Endoscopy Center (EPEC), located at 1501 N. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown, also provides expert colonoscopy care.
