For Your Convenience, We Can Do Most Procedures
On Our Campus

St. Augustine Endoscopy Center (SAEC) was opened in 1989 to provide ambulatory outpatient surgery services to the patients of Gastroenterology Associates of St. Augustine. We were the first free standing Endoscopy Center in the State of Florida. SAEC is attached to the main office of Gastroenterology Associates thus providing a convenient, cost effective, individualized endoscopy experience.

St. Augustine Endoscopy Center is licensed by the State of Florida and approved Medicare facility. We have received the highest term of accreditation awarded by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) since our first survey in 2001.

Our advanced endoscopic equipment and specially trained and licensed personnel, including Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and Registered Nurses, support our mission to provide compassionate, professional care in the safest environment. We consider the safety, comfort and overall experience of our patients to be of the utmost importance,

Some of the procedures performed at SAEC include Upper GI Endoscopy, Colonoscopy, Flexible Sigmoidoscopy, Small Bowel Enteroscopy and Bravo pH Capsule monitoring.


Your comfort and safety are the main focus of our anesthesia services. We utilize specially trained and licensed Certified Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) to administer anesthesia during your procedure. They are highly trained professionals in the administration and monitoring of intravenous sedation. The CRNA team are all ACLS certified. The CRNA works along with the physicians and nursing staff to ensure a complete and comfortable examination.
