Jan 15, 2013, 10:39 ET from Physicians Endoscopy, LLC

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Physicians Endoscopy, LLC (PE), a coalition of five local GI physicians that includes the practice of Island Digestive Disease Consultants, doctors Kourosh Adhami, MD; Neil Lobo, MD; James Kohlroser, DO; Babak Danesh, MD; and Krishnaiyer Subramani, MD, a solo physician whose practice is located in West Islip, are pleased to announce the formation of Island Digestive Health Center (IDHC).

The project received contingent Public Health and Health Planning Council approval on December 6, 2012. Projected to open mid-2013, the new two-room center, located in West Islip, Suffolk County, New York, will be conveniently situated close to the physicians' practices. "For many years we've all practiced office-based endoscopy within our professional practices; however, now is the perfect time to develop a new state-of-the-art facility. The regulatory environment within the office is becoming more and more difficult, and the headaches that result from trying to maintain a high quality, office-based procedural environment are no longer satisfying for me or my GI colleagues. We have been very pleased with Physicians Endoscopy's ability to help organize, coordinate and execute a strategy to bring together our two practices in this joint ventured relationship," stated Babak Danesh, MD, Medical Director.

"We are extremely excited about our partnership with this highly talented coalition of five premier GI physicians in the West Islip area. It has been a pleasure working with the physicians who have been able to build upon their relationship, recognizing the value the center brings to the community and to their patients. This represents our eighth project in the state of New York. Upon opening, IDHC will become the 27th partnered facility to join the PE family," stated Bob Estes, VP, Center Development & Implementation for Physicians Endoscopy.

Physicians Endoscopy is a nationally recognized development and management partner for single-specialty EASCs. The company currently operates 27 partnered facilities in 13 states and will open several additional facilities in the next twelve months. For more information, please visit
