“Facing the extreme challenges of 2020-2021, it was our honor to continue serving our patients.”
Thank you to the readers of Columbia Metropolitan Magazine for this incredible honor. Consultants in Gastroenterology (CIG) has been setting the standard and raising the bar for treatment of digestive diseases in the Midlands for nearly 30 years. It is their mission to deliver outstanding medical care in the field of gastroenterology.
Gastroenterologists are experts in digestive health. They are clearly the experts at performing endoscopic procedures such as a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy, as well as screening for colon polyps and colon cancer. Additionally, they diagnose and treat many other conditions including gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), swallowing problems, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatic and liver disease.
CIG began as a small practice in the 1970s and has now grown to be the largest gastroenterology practice in the Midlands. With 10 board certified physicians, they perform more outpatient procedures than any other medical group in the state.
As a local independent practice, not owned by a hospital or national corporation, they made it their goal to provide the highest quality care at the best value. CIG’s independence allows for a more flexible and cost-effective delivery of care to their patients. Their commitment and independence resulted in CIG being recognized by a major South Carolina insurance company as the “first and only” gastroenterology practice demonstrating outstanding quality in colonoscopies.
For the convenience of their patients, they have four locations and more than 100 employees dedicated to patient care. They proudly support local charity events and have partnered with the Colorectal Cancer Prevention Network to provide colonoscopies to the uninsured and medically underserved populations of South Carolina.
It is their privilege to serve the great citizens of our area. During the difficult period of 2020-2021, they faced and embraced challenges in the delivery of health care. Consultants in Gastroenterology is poised to continue as a leader in the Midlands.
