TDDC furthers Louisiana presence by welcoming Gastroenterology Associates

Founded in 1977, Gastroenterology Associates is the second Louisiana-based group to join Texas Digestive Disease Consultants (TDDC). Gastroenterology Associates is comprised of 18 board certified gastroenterologists who perform a number of advanced procedures, including endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), motility studies, imaging, weight-loss services, in addition to general gastroenterology procedures.

The practice consists of two clinics, Jefferson Highway and Perkins Road, and includes a clinical research program. The Jefferson Highway clinic is a part of the Digestive Health Center of Louisiana (DHCLA), which offers patients the ability to schedule their clinical visit and procedures within the same building.

Gastroenterology Associates has been proudly serving the Baton Rouge community for more than 40 years and regularly sponsors the Get Your Rear in Gear 5K Run/Walk, which aims to raise awareness for colon cancer screening. “We are proud to have Gastroenterology Associates join the TDDC family,” says Dr. James Weber, TDDC’s president and CEO. “We look forward to serving the Baton Rouge area and continuing to provide high-caliber, patient-centric care throughout the nation.”
