MNGI Digestive Health – Why Work For Us?


undefined

MNGI Digestive Health is a Twin Cities-based physician practice specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric digestive system disorders. Our gastroenterologists have expertise in virtually all aspects of adult and pediatric disorders of the digestive system.

All of our doctors are board-certified or eligible gastroenterologists, who have completed two to three years of GI training in addition to an internal medicine or pediatric residency. Gastroenterologists also receive specialized training in endoscopy, a diagnostic procedure which uses a flexible, lighted tube with a built-in video camera to examine the inside of the digestive/intestinal tract.

Endoscopy Centers & Clinics

MNGI currently owns and operates several outpatient clinics and endoscopy centers, which are located in Bloomington, Chanhassen, Coon Rapids, Eagan, Maplewood, Northeast Minneapolis, Plymouth, St. Paul and coming soon to Woodbury. The MNGI endoscopy centers provide comfortable, patient-centered care and are consistently ranked by area health plans as some of the most efficient and cost-effective outpatient facilities in the Twin Cities.

Clinical Subspecialization

Many of our physicians specialize in areas such as pediatrics, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), acid reflux, esophageal disorders, colon cancer prevention, liver and biliary tract disease, hepatitis and pancreatic disease.

In addition to our regular outpatient clinics, MNGI has developed three comprehensive, multidisciplinary programs to address the unique needs of people with IBD, hepatitis/liver disease and acid reflux. These clinics are designed to provide coordinated, state-of-the-art care to people with chronic GI diseases.

Pathology Laboratory

Early in 2007, MNGI Digestive Health expanded its practice to include a full service, in-house pathology laboratory to expedite biopsy diagnosis and reporting for patients, their families and referring physicians.

Biopsy specimens and tissue samples are picked up twice each business day from our five outpatient endoscopy centers and couriered to the MNGI pathology laboratory in Maplewood, where they are processed within six to eight hours of patient procedures.

Hospital Pathology Associates (HPA) physicians, who are highly respected and specially trained in gastrointestinal pathology, read and interpret specimens on-site, often the same day they are received. Biopsy results are available 24 to 48 hours post-procedure, greatly reducing patient wait time and anxiety. 

Hospital & Inpatient Services

MNGI physicians maintain collaborative relationships with local primary care providers, providing much needed patient screening and diagnostic services as well as unique expertise in the management of unusual or chronic GI diseases.

Every day, MNGI gastroenterologists are scheduled at local hospitals for on-site consultation with physicians, hospital staff and patients. Our doctors contribute to effective diagnosis and efficient treatment, often resulting in decreased inpatient lengths of stay and increased patient satisfaction. Minnesota Gastroenterology also provides therapeutic and interventional inpatient GI procedures when needed, such as endoscopic ultrasound.

Leading Edge Technology

Our gastroenterologists are known for their use of screening technology - such as colonoscopy, endoscopy, radiology, ultrasound and high resolution manometry - to assist in patient diagnosis and treatment planning.

Moreover, because of our highly trained personnel and well-equipped facilities, MNGI has access to emerging technologies that are often unavailable to other practices, such as the BRAVO pH capsule, HALO ablation for Barrett's esophagus and video capsule endoscopy.

Research

Over the years, our doctors have been some of the first to introduce clinical advances in GI diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, making MNGI a leader in gastroenterology practice. As a frequent participant in national research studies - such blue light treatment of the stomach for eradication of H. pylori and trial medications to treat Hepatitis C - the practice provides opportunities for patients to participate in multi-center national and international clinical research trials.

Patient & Community Education

Since 1996, MNGI has provided GI education to its clinic patients and to the general public. MNGI physicians and staff regularly present community-based seminars to increase public awareness about important health issues, such as colorectal cancer symptoms, risk factors and screening.

A Top Workplace in Minnesota

We are committed to providing patients with the best in patient care and our employees and physicians love what they do.  Their feedback to an independent research firm has placed the company on the Star Tribune's list of Top Workplaces in Minnesota for five years in a row - 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017!

I feel honored to help them do their work each day and do what I can to make each day at clinic one that staff and patients can appreciate.” – Kristin, Clinic Site Director

Our organization as a whole is nothing less than amazing!!   I like how our company promotes growth and success! I’ve been with MNGI for almost 11yrs and I love that I remain cross-trained in multiple positions.   Our Providers truly care and listen to your opinions.
