Gastroenterology Center of Nevada Patients Worry About Hepatitis Risk

The same three men listed as owners of the Southern Nevada Endoscopy Center which is accused of bad practices are also listed as owners of the Gastroenterology Center of Nevada on Eastern and Flamingo. Patients who received procedures there are worried they will also need to be tested for Hepatitis and HIV.

Arline Rubin had a colonoscopy back in October there. She's concerned because her paperwork shows the two centers are both run by the same people.

Her husband who is a retired doctor told Eyewitness News, "It would be terribly unusual for something that occurred in a surgery center owned by a group and one surgery center to be different from the other center owned by the group."

Arline worries she may still need to get tested, something she will have to pay out of pocket for. She says that is only adding insult to injury for the thousands who will need to get tested, and she hopes the center responsible will help their patients.
