Dr. Taunk provides some of the highest quality colonoscopies in the Tampa Bay area. The quality of your colonoscopy is determined by how often your gastroenterologist finds an adenoma (pre-cancerous polyp) and is measured by a statistic known as adenoma detection rate (ADR). The higher the ADR, the more often your gastroenterologist finds pre-cancerous polyps and prevents colon cancer. The national average for ADR among all gastroenterologists is 25%. Dr. Taunk has an ADR of 56%, which is considered one of the best ADRs in the Tampa Bay area. This means, that Dr. Taunk is among the top gastroenterologists in preventing colon cancer and you can rest assured that you will be receiving a high quality colonoscopy.
