About Us

Hillside Gastroenterology & Nutrition is a solo-based private practice in Hanover, Pennsylvania. We are accepting and treating new patients, limited to gastrointestinal and nutritional disorders, along with weight management and screening colonoscopies. Physician referrals to the practice are mandatory. The range of age of patients we see is, but not limited to, five years and older. Typically, we see 4-5 new patients per day, along with follow up visits for existing patients. The average waiting period to see a new patient is about 4-6 weeks after the appointment is made.

Most all of our endoscopies are performed at Hillside Endoscopy Center, which is a Department of Health and Medicare-approved, Pennsylvania state-licensed facility. Our facility offers the patient a safe, private and convenient setting. The patient has a variety of bowel cleansing agents to choose from prior to the colonoscopy. We have an anesthesiologist who will provide complete sedation and a registered nurse who maintains comprehensive care throughout the procedure.
