Referring Physicians

We would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you and your patients. For your convenience, we would like to give you several ways you can send us information about the patient and for the referral

  • Call our office number at 302-744-9310
  • Fax us the information and we will give them a call to make an appointment within 24 hours. In most cases we will try to reach the patient on the same day. We try to give new patients an appointment within 1 week. The fax number is 302-744-9312
  • You call reach Dr Dave via the answering service or his cell phone anytime of the day. The answering service is 302-744-7337
  • We would be happy to give you the ability to reach our patient portal and make an appointment through the web portal
  • If you have eclinicalworks - you send us the information via the ecw community hub

We would like to give you the confidence that we strive to give the best possible care that is possible. Here are some pertinent statistics that should help you compare and evaluate our performance - as compared to national bench scores. These are bench scores for 2013

  • Colonoscopy - The cecum was reached in 98% of the cases
  • The average withdrawal time was 8 min. The national average or expected withdrawal time is 6 min. This is one of the parameters used to evaluate thoroughness of the colonoscopy
  • The polyp detection rate for the nation is 20%. My polyp detection rate for adenomatous polyps is 25% for all comers. However, if we just look at screening colonoscopies and total polyp detection rate it is 48% - way above national average.
  • Other parameters like PPD / gold TB quantiferrin testing prior to starting monoclonal antibodies is 100%

Lastly, since GI practice is not just procedure oriented, it is important to remain abreast of the latest medical knowledge. Last year alone in 2013, Dr. Dave had more than 100 CME hours.
