The anesthesiologist and the RN have been part of Dr. Knapp’s team for over a decade. They are involved with every patient undergoing an endoscopic procedure. The anesthesiologist and the nurse carefully oversee patient care before, during and after all endoscopic procedures. They are assisted by two specially trained endoscopy technicians who maintain the endoscopicequipment, procedure and recovery rooms and assist with other clinical tasks. A third endoscopy technician is employed to sterilize all endoscopic equipment after each procedure. Clinical staff members come to know patients personally, adding to a more congenial and positive experience.
The administrative staff is directed by the office manager.
