Services

 

Our board-certified specialists are fellows of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. They include Surgeons, Gastroenterologists, and Anesthesiologists who have privileges at local GTA hospitals, allowing for easy patient access to hospital if necessary. We are not just a “scope clinic” like many others. At TEC, our team of professionals take pride in working together to ensure that all our patients’ needs are met and expectations surpassed. Conditions ranging from GERD, peptic ulcer disease, H. pylori testing, diverticular disease, colorectal cancer, and anorectal conditions (hemorrhoids, fissures and fistulas) are treated with the latest, and most innovative equipment and techniques. Our goal is to care for our patients in a dignified fashion by offering competent, evidence-based care, and to lessen suffering as patients struggle to deal with an area of the body that is sensitive. We do not just “scope” you and send you back to your family doctor without addressing your condition and concerns. Once you are a patient at TEC, we treat you to the best of our abilities until your conditions are addressed and your expectations are met. Our patients experience the “TEC difference”. Our mission is to provide comprehensive endoscopy services with the highest standards of care in a safe and comfortable, state-of-the-art facility!

Referrals

 

A referral from your family physician is required. If you do not have a regular physician, you can see a physician at a walk-in clinic and ask for a referral. Once we receive your referral, we will take care of everything else and make sure you are looked after every step of the way. Typically, you will be seen within two weeks from the time of your referral. This leads to an immediate diagnosis and treatment plan resulting in optimal patient care. We will inform you of your test results IMMEDIATELY after your procedure. Appropriate follow-up visits will be provided to patients who need it, and referrals for further care are made. Moreover, patients who are found to have significant Gastrointestinal pathology (such as Colorectal Cancer or Inflammatory Bowel Disease), will be taken care of by our specialists right away, while keeping you and your primary care physician informed every step of the way. TEC is truly a “one-stop” facility, ensuring that you receive the best comprehensive care.
