Why Choose Us?

We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality of care. Dr. Schub makes it his mission to give his patients individualized and quality care when they step into our office. As part of our continuous quality improvement efforts we conducted an anonymous survey of our newest 500 patients, using an online survey company, SurveyMonkey. All participants were made aware that their responses would remain anonymous. Here are the highlights:

  • Patients preferred Dr. Schub to other gastroenterologists by over 4:1 out of new patients polled in an independent web survey in 2013 who had also seen other gastroenterologists.
  • Regarding our quality of care, 87% of patients stated that care was “Excellent, Very Good, or Good.”
  • Patients stated at a rate of 4:1 that their condition had improved when seeing Dr. Schub in comparison to other gastroenterologists they had seen in the past.
  • When polled about our Endoscopy Center, respondents stated at a rate of 4:1 that they preferred our center in comparison to others that they had visited.
  • Dr. Schub’s Adenoma Detection Rate, or success rate of finding precancerous polyps during a colonoscopy,  is 61% for men–which beats the national average of 25% and 75% for women, which beats the national average of 15%.  Both stats are close to triple the national average among other gastroenterologists. Dr. Schub’s attention to detail and care for his patents is simply unmatched in the area.
  • Our Cecal Intubation Rate (completion of the colon seen) is over 99%. The national average is 94%. 
  • Less than 1% of patients are ever turned away from a colonoscopy because of an inadequately cleaned colon. We make sure our patients are informed and ready to go for their procedure. The rate in which patients are turned away for bad prep and the like are  between 10-24% of the time according to the national average.

The combination of a high Adenoma Detection Rate ,Cecal Intubation Rate, and high levels of satisfaction among our patients essentially assures you before, during, and after your visit that you are in the hands of one of the best gastroenterologists in the area.

As you can read from the above, it’s no wonder patients “prefer” Dr. Russell O. Schub.
