Los Angeles-based La Peer Health Systems develops a comprehensive website for patients regarding esophageal and gastrointestinal-related conditions.

This a major resource for La Peer patients.

The Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence, a subsidiary of La Peer Health Systems in Los Angeles, has launched a new website offering patients a single reference point on a range of esophageal conditions.

Along with the launch of their new Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence, the Los Angeles-based surgical center has created an online presence for individuals seeking information on conditions such as, gastroesophageal reflux disease, Barrett’s esophagus, esophageal cancer and more. The website, not only provides information on the conditions, but gives patients and prospective patients diagnostic and treatment information as well. With a reputation as a leading medical facility, offering high-level patient care, minimally invasive techniques and state-of-the-art surgical techniques, La Peer aims to provide patients the #1 online source of esophageal and gastrointestinal care.

“A considerable amount of time has gone into designing a website, such that our patients and potential patients can locate information and our doctors quickly, literally everything is at their fingertips,” says Dr. Peyton Berookim, Co-Medical Director for the Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence.

The website provides facts, background information on the Center’s leading physicians and detailed information on symptomology, diagnostic tools and treatment techniques. The website even features comprehensive information on its advanced procedures, including radiofrequency ablation therapy.

“This a major resource for La Peer patients,” said Dr. Mark Davidson, Co-Medical Director for the Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence. “The website is just a glimpse of what our Barrett’s Esophagus Center of Excellence offers to our patients.”
