Many of the procedures that Dr. Cole and associates have performed at the hospital can now be done on-site. Since opening in 2007, the 10,000 square foot facility features three procedure rooms, ten beds in the admit-recovery area, a qualified staff, immediate feedback on procedure findings, two day turn-around on pathology specimens and lab results, all within a comfortable, relaxed setting.

Because our providers and staff strive continuously to improve the quality of care we provide to the citizens of Eastern north Carolina, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) recognized Gastroenterology East for meeting their national standards for the provision of quality health care. Organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by expert physicians surveyors, nurses and administrators who are involved in ambulatory health care.
