Dr. Andrew Morse, Kelly Christian and Tammy Warden have been a part of this vital program since its inception in 2007. Numerous colonoscopy and upper endoscopy screenings have been performed monthly, typically the first Wednesday of each month, for 16 consecutive years. Danielle Allen joined approximately 10 years ago and Michael Martin is the newest member to round out the team of 2 highly skilled RNs and 2 CNAs. Michelle Phelps manages the schedule and ensures the patients are prepared and well educated regarding their procedure.
Most patients are return clients. The team works diligently to ensure patients are comfortable and at ease when facing a procedure that could be life-saving, but isn’t something they look forward to. Over the years, cancerous tumors and pre-cancerous polyps have been identified. Studies show that treatment is most successful with early identification and lives have indeed been saved through the colonoscopy/upper endoscopy screenings done at Rangely District Hospital.
The endoscopy team at Rangely District Hospital takes pride in the professionalism and compassion shown to all our patients. As members of this community, their goal is to make an uncomfortable situation as comfortable and safe as possible.
