It is the mission of South Coast Gastroenterology to provide exceptional specialty care with a personal touch.  Our phones are answered promptly by a clerical staff member.  Same day appointments for urgent issues are always available.  We have 24/7 coverage by a GI Specialist.  It is our policy to return non-urgent calls in 24 hours.  Our patients are referred to the finest surgeons, colorectal surgeons, and other Specialists who provide care consistent with our philosophy.  Most major insurance plans are accepted.  We will assist those patients who have insurance that we do not participate with.  Self-pay patients are always welcome.
