Bristol Gastroenterology Associates is a group of 6 providers. It is the only GI group in the City of Bristol and its suburbs with a satellite office in Farmington and a free standing outpatient endoscopy center in Plainville Connecticut. The sites are only a few miles away from each other. The group is unique in that it has an Institute for specialized gastroenterological procedures (The Connecticut Gastroenterology Institute) through which many of the current GI procedures were pioneered in Connecticut and a clinical research center (the Connecticut Clinical Research Foundation) where cutting edge clinical research protocols are conducted resulting in several research presentation and publications each year. The group members also have ownership in a state of the art free standing endoscopy center.
