You may already know Southern California Medical Gastroenterology Group, Inc. (SCMGG); after all, we have been serving the Santa Monica community for 40 years. Founded by Gastroenterology pioneers, Doctors Richard Corlin, Thomas Kun, and Dave Rimmer, SCMGG has been on the cutting edge of patient care from the very beginning.
But we are not satisfied with resting on our strong history. We continue to innovate and expand – all to the benefit of our patients. We are excited about the future of “SoCal Gastro Group” and we want to share some of our plans with you.
Our Medical Staff
Our Medical Staff has always been one of our strongest attributes. For example, Dr. Rudolph Bedford has become a Gastroenterology Icon in Southern California because of his expertise in pancreatic biliary disease. He is a seasoned Interventional Endoscopist, uniquely skilled in Diagnostic and Therapeutic Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS).
And now, we have added a new member to our team, Dr. Rahul Dixit. Dr. Dixit has trained with world renowned doctors at leading Universities in the areas of Hepatology, Biliary, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
Drs. Martha Hierro and Lenna Martyak lead our Women’s Digestive Health Team as they focus on improving the lives of patient’s struggling with functional IBS through a “care team” approach that places the patient at the center of the equation.
Drs. Richard Corlin, Thomas Kun, and Marc Harwitt offer tremendous leadership as they guide us into the future by working to develop innovative models of care necessary for success in the new world of accountable care, while maintaining our strong ties with traditional market stakeholders.
We have recently opened new offices in the Culver City and Malibu communities. Expanding our reach outside of Santa Monica makes us much more accessible to patients across Southern California; reducing travel time and expense for our existing patients and introducing us to new patients that will benefit from our services.
Thank you for your trust.
