Gastroenterology and Hepatology Specialists
Gastroenterology and Hepatology Specialists, Inc. (GHS) was established in 1998 by Dr. Nabil Fahmy upon completion of his three year Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellowship in Richmond, Virginia. Under Dr. Fahmy's leadership, the practice has grown into the success it is today. In 2004 the practice moved from Mercy Medical Center Professional Building to its new facility in the upper level of 4360 Fulton Dr., N.W., Suite B, in Canton (Jackson Township). Dr. Sameh Kamel joined the practice in 2008 following his GI fellowship in Long Island, New York and Dr. Xiao joined the practice in 2010 following his GI fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic.
The practice also employs physician extenders, Darin J. Vaughn, PA-C and Diana L. Hunter, CNS These providers work very closely with the physicians in both the hospital and office settings in providing quality medical care to our patients.
GHS handles all routine GI problems as well as pancreas and liver disorders. We also offer office capsule endoscopy services as well as outpatient Endoscopic Ultrasound. Endoscopic Ultrasound is a procedure that combines endoscopy and ultrasound in order to obtain images and information about the digestive tract and surrounding tissues and organs.
Stark Ambulatory Surgery Center, L.L.C. (SASC) was opened in the lower level of our facility in September 2004. This state of the art, physcian owned, surgery center has upheld the highest AAAHC accreditation since its opening. Our physicians perform routine endoscopy and colonoscopy at SASC. The ASC is staffed with experienced GI endoscopy nurses and personnel. SASC is contracted with Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurance carriers.
