Two MSU Health gastroenterologists and a physician assistant have opened a gastroenterology clinic in Lansing, Mich., local station WKAR reported Nov. 3.
The gastroenterologists, Catherine Kerschen, MD, Lisa Oliveri-LePain, MD, and Maria Reed, have been practicing together for more than 20 years.
They had a common goal of wanting a "patient-centric community practice," Dr. Oliveri-LePain told WKUR.
“We’re interested in outreach by helping part of the community that doesn't have the best access to healthcare," she said. "Today, nobody should be dying from something like colon cancer. We really want to help the community and build a strong program.”
