Schenectady doctors' group joins Albany Med
Digestive Disease Associates of Schenectady is joining the Albany Med Faculty Physicians Group, marking Albany Medical Center's first physician practice in Schenectady County.
The addition is part of a strategy by the hospital system to provide access to its medical expertise at various convenient locations throughout the region, the hospital announced Wednesday. Its physicians group has nearly 500 physicians who treat patients at the Albany hospital and more than 20 community-based locations across the region.
The Schenectady physicians group will now be called the Albany Med Community Division of Gastroenterology. It will continue to treat patients at its existing location at 2147 Eastern Parkway, as well as satellite offices in Clifton Park and Guilderland. The physicians also perform inpatient and outpatient gastroenterology services at Ellis Hospital and gastroenterological consultation at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital.
"Albany Med offers our patients the opportunity to be seen and treated by world-class specialists who offer the latest technologies and procedures along with a team approach to treating all conditions, from the routine to the highly complex," said Dr. James Litynski, of the Schenectady group. "As part of Albany Med, we know that we will be working with a group that is respected throughout this region and beyond."
Litynski is one of three physicians joining Albany Med's physicians group. The others are Dr. Peter Purcell and Dr. Zainul Syed. Jill Hoffman, a registered physician assistant, will also join the group.
