Procedure Update

RESUMPTION OF URGENT AND ELECTIVE PROCEDURES

April 27th, 2020

The recent Executive Order issued by Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, has allowed us to resume the process of scheduling and performing both urgent and elective cases. Despite the loosening of restrictions, we want to assure you that your well-being remains our number one priority. We will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by various health agencies in order to keep you safe throughout the procedure process.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the above information, please do not hesitate to contact our office for more information.

COVID-19 Office Update: To our patients (present, future and potential),

The emergence of COVID-19 as a global pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for our entire society, both personally and professionally. Our business is no exception. Although we have tried to maintain a sense of normalcy throughout COVID-19’s evolution, we are no longer able to continue the routine of “business as usual”. In keeping with the guidelines set forth by the CDC, the Surgeon General of the United States and our parent company (DHAT - Digestive Health Associates of Texas), our practice is implementing the following changes immediately:

  • Our new office hours are Monday - Thursday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. With the exception of patients scheduled for urgent/emergent procedures, we will be closed on Fridays.
  • Clinic appointments will consist of urgent/emergent visits only. Routine office follow-ups (i.e. medication refills and yearly “check-ups”) will be handled by phone.

The above changes will remain in effect until we receive appropriate clearance to resume normal business operations. Until then, stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Northeast Tarrant Gastroenterology Associates

Our physicians are board certified gastroenterologists committed to providing high quality, cost effective and personalized care. All visits (Initial and Follow-up) are scheduled with the physician. 

Our physicians treat and diagnose conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and the biliary system (liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts).

We have two office locations in Northeast Tarrant County to choose from. Our North Richland Hills location was established in 2006 in 2013 we opened an office in the Keller /Alliance area to provide care for the growing population in that region.

Practice Updates, News and Articles:

Dr. Bryan OngNortheast Tarrant Gastroenterology Associates (NETGA) is sad to announce that Dr. Bryan Ong will be leaving our practice effective December 15, 2020.

Dr. Ong has been a vital part of our group for the past 6 years and will be greatly missed by both staff and patients alike. We wish him nothing but the best on his new endeavors and hold out hope that our paths might cross again in the future.

As per the criteria set forth by our parent company, Digestive Health Associates of Texas (DHAT), NETGA will no longer be scheduling new patient appointments for Dr. Ong from this point forward. These patients will be seen by either Dr. Murray or Dr. Hill.

As for Dr. Ong's previously established patients, they may still schedule follow up appointments with him up until his departure date. After is departure, NETGA will work to transfer these patients to the care of either Dr. Murray or Dr. Hill. While there will surely be a few “hiccups” during this transition period, we will do our best to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
NETGA

PROSTATE CANCER AWARENESS AND SECONDARY CANCERS

Prostate Cancer Awareness

Posted August 26th, 2020

First, we would like to acknowledge that September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. So, for all the men out there who are of appropriate age, get your prostate checked. Second, although prostate cancer isn’t a gastroenterology-related cancer, it does provide us the opportunity to discuss a very important issue: Secondary Cancers. Secondary cancers are new malignancies (cancers) that develop in individuals who have previously had cancer. An example of this would be a prostate cancer survivor who subsequently develops colon cancer.
