Rockford Gastroenterology Associates

Several third-year medical students from the University of Illinois College of Medicine Rockford recently visited Rockford Gastroenterology Associates to get a hands-on tutorial about endoscopy. RGA physician Dr. Aaron Shiels demonstrated the basics of endoscopy using models of the stomach and large intestine. The students took turns using actual endoscopes to evaluate the lining of the GI tract and learned how to take biopsies and remove polyps.

Dr. Shiels is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford and serves as the GI Curriculum Director for the medical school. He said the experience was well-received among the group: "The third year of medical school is the time when students start deciding what type of doctors they're going to become. Having the opportunity to learn about the GI tract in this way will hopefully provide them with a better understanding of the way we care for patients on a daily basis."

Rockford Gastroenterology Associates

Rockford Gastroenterology Associates celebrated the retirement of our longtime Administrator Nancy Garry today. Nancy joined the RGA family in 2000 and has been instrumental to our success in becoming a leader in digestive health.

While Nancy's responsibilities focused on taking care of the business aspects of our practice, her priority was always to take care of our patients and our employees. The physicians and staff at RGA are forever grateful to Nancy for her 17 years of kindness, dedication and commitment to excellence. We will miss her and wish her nothing but the best in retirement.
