About Capital Digestive Care
Capital Digestive Care History
Established in January 2009, Capital Digestive Care unified more than 50 physicians across the Washington metropolitan area in their desire to advance the delivery of care for patients suffering from all types of digestive health conditions. Our gastroenterologists partner with both a specialized pathology laboratory and the largest clinical research program of its kind in the region to gain a better understanding of each patient’s individual condition and ensure the very best in patient care, medical diagnosis, and the most effective treatment.
As a leader in our specialty and in our community, Capital Digestive Care’s commitment to our patients extends beyond our office doors. Since 2009 we have supported the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) as the presenting sponsor for the National Capital Area Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis walk, directing almost $350,000 in support of critical education, research, and awareness programs. Most recently, Capital Digestive Care has partnered with the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity and the Cigna Foundation on a unique community outreach program. The program, aptly titled HAIR for Health Advocates In-reach and Research, trains barbers and stylists to deliver critical health information on colon cancer and colon cancer screening to African Americans.
