Screening at 50
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common, and most deadly, of cancers. For this reason, colon cancer screening is recommended for everyone over the age of 50. The good news is colon cancer is 90% preventable when detected early, so we’re glad you’re considering a screening. These exams save lives. Preventing this disease is our driving passion at Salem Gastro.

Flu season is upon us. If you have an appointment at our office, but are experiencing flu symptoms (such as fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, or experiencing body aches/fatigue), then we would ask you to reschedule your appointment for the safety of our staff and other patients.

We support our patients having access to their health information. Besides our Patient Portal, we support using mobile apps to your health information in a safe and secure way. However, we are unaware of any apps that can do so at this time. This web site will be updated when we become aware of any apps that you can use to access your health information.
Salem Health is starting construction on a new tower (as of January of 2020). This will affect our parking and patient drop-off significantly.
Patient drop-off for Salem Gastro and Salem Endoscopy will be under building ‘C’ off Winter St.
This will be valet parking.
If you prefer to park your own car, you can drop patients off under building ‘C’ and park in the parking garage on Capitol St. You will have to go through lobby of building ‘A’ to reach building ‘C’.
