With the addition of our endoscopy suite, we have expanded our capabilities and are now fully accredited to perform endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures at our medical office inside the Paragon Medical Building.
Our in-office endoscopy suite is modern, comfortable, equipped with the newest technology, and meets the standards of The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). Dr. Goldman works with an in-house team of nurses and a board certified anesthesiologist to administer endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures inside the suite. When patients arrive for their procedures, they begin their day in the endoscopy suite and remain there through recovery and discharge.
The endoscopy suite is accredited under the AAAASF’s procedural program, which is designed for ambulatory facilities performing therapeutic and diagnostic procedures under sedation. The AAAASF has been inspecting and accrediting ambulatory surgery facilities for over 30 years and is the gold standard for accreditation. The organization’s mission is to develop and implement standards of excellence to ensure the highest quality of patient safety. An AAAASF member inspected our endoscopy suite, our protocols and our staffing, and determined that our facility meets 100% of the standards required for accreditation. The AAAASF is the largest non-for-profit accrediting organization in the United States and has accredited more than 2000 ambulatory surgery facilities nationwide.
Dr. Goldman is pleased to be able to offer patients the option to schedule their procedures at his office as well as at the Roy Lester Schneider Hospital.
