It is with great sadness and deepest regret that we announce the sudden and untimely passing of Dr. Douglas R. Thurman. Dr. Thurman passed peacefully on Saturday, April 23, 2016. We have lost a wonderful friend, colleague and highly skilled physician. Dr. Thurman was an integral part of our group over the past 14 years; he practiced with impeccable integrity and provided compassionate service. More than he loved the practice of medicine and the field of Gastroenterology, he loved caring for all of his patients.


In honoring his legacy, we will make him proud by giving our best to his patients, with all of the kindness, compassion and attention that he so generously gave all these years.


Your health and continuity of care is of the utmost importance to us. Our Physicians are available and will continue to provide uninterrupted care for all of your digestive health needs. In addition, we are pleased to announce the joining of Dr. Joseph Usta, Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist to our group. Dr. Usta began seeing patients in August of 2016.  Dr. Scott A. Larson is joining and will begin seeing patients in October 2016. We sincerely appreciate you continuing to allow us to work with you through all phases of your care, so that we can assist you in living a happy, healthy and productive life.


Our staff is available to assist you with any questions you may have.


As a tribute to Dr. Thurman, and to preserve his legacy for generations to come, we are working on preparing a memory book for his family. We kindly request your assistance with this project. We simply ask you to share your fondest memory or funniest story with us and include how you knew or met Doug. Our goal is to obtain as many stories or memories as possible from those who knew and worked with him over the years. Anyone wishing to contribute may send their story by clicking the link below and following the instructions on the site. Please feel free to share this request with others who knew Dr. Thurman. Thank you.
