Our core tenet is treating the whole patient by collaborating with other clinical experts and organizations located in the same medical building. These clinical experts include university based liver transplant services, in-house lab services, infusion services and clinical trial research. Working with the local hospital (Atlanticare Mainland Division) in the region, we provide digestive health services and perform advanced surgical procedures.
