It is with regret that I announce the closure of Front Range Gastroenterology Associates (dba Colorado Center for Digestive Disorders) and Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC. Our last day will be June 2, 2017 at 5:00 PM. Complete patient care will continue for both inpatient and outpatient basis until that time.
My decision is done with mixed feelings as it has been a privilege and honor to participate in your healthcare. FRGA (aka C2D2) has been open for 23 years while Colorado Endoscopy centers, LLC closes after 13 years. During this long run, many have become “part of the family” making this decision even more difficult.
The closure results from neither personal health nor professional issues. Rather, the need to support and be involved more intimately with our siblings and requires a more flexible schedule.
I am not retiring but will pursue locum tenens employment for the foreseeable future. After that, I plan to get another “grown-up” job. I will continue to be part of the volunteer faculty at VAMC and University as I have done for the past 24 years.
A copy of your medical records is available on request. Please allow 7-10 days to complete this task. The staff will need additional time as we continue to care for our patients.
The medical records will be transferred to another healthcare that has yet to be determined. That entity will be posted as soon as possible. This transfer necessity is based on requirements to preserve medical records available for 7 years. This office has retained consistent records since 2007 in our current electronic health records system. We have other records extending back to 1996. I have maintained these records despite the lack of legal obligation as it is in the patients best interest. This is huge amount of data that requires a capable staff for maintenance.
As the practice has yet to close, specific referrals should not be made. It is in your best medical interest to make an appointment so that final discussion and updating your medical record can be accomplished in a timely fashion. At that time, we can discuss your personal needs and select a gastroenterologist more attentive to your individual needs.
As all our lives are busy, the option of a specific referral during an office visit may not be possible. In the Front Range, we are blessed with many competent physicians. A list of preferred local physicians and their contacts is listed below for your convenience. It will be updated after additional discussion with providers.
We will do everything possible to make this transition smooth and secure.

Front Range Gastroenterology Associates (dba Colorado Center for Digestive Diseases) was founded by Dr. Jensen in 1994. The gastroenterology professionals at Colorado Center for Digestive Disorders and Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC are pleased to welcome you to our practice. It is our mission to provide patients with the information required to make informed decisions, integrate seamlessly with your primary care physician and other specialists. We offer treatment the following:
This website has been specifically developed to provide you with valuable information about gastroenterology, endoscopy, digestive disorders and treatments. With time, the website will be further developed and updated. Our first website under the www.gastromd.com URL was originated in the late 1990s.
From 1994 through 2004, the practice experienced many changes and upgrades, ultimately resulting in the development of our current location at 205 S. Main Street, Suite A in Longmont, Colorado. The current location features approximately 5000 square feet of clinical and endoscopy facilities. The location is divided into a clinical practice and a fully licensed, Medicare certified, state of the art endoscopy center (Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC).
Through the years, the practice has featured a number of "firsts" in Northern Colorado for clinical practice, endoscopy as well as professional accolades. As an example, Colorado Center for Digestive Disorders was the first gastroenterology practice in Northern Colorado to have a fully functional electronic health record system (1998-1999). Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC has received unrestricted certification from Medicare since its inception. Ongoing outside professional, unbiased, reviewers have been continually accessed to maintain and document the quality of care provided at the endoscopy center.
Quality endoscopy care has been confirmed by a continuously unblemished AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. http://www.aaahc.org/) certifications. AAAHC is a comprehensive, rigorous and voluntary evaluation similar to the accreditation processed used at hospitals (The Joint Commission). No other ASC in Northern Colorado has this distinction. Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC was the first Colorado recipient from the prestigious American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (http://www.asge.org/) Quality Endoscopy Recognition Program (Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program), a distinction we have received on a continual basis. A list of recipients of the EURP (November, 2014) can be accessed here.
Furthermore, as a free standing ambulatory surgical center (ASC), Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC provides significantly reduced cost (in some cases 50% less facility fees) to patients and insurance carriers when compared to hospital based outpatient endoscopy centers (click here for more information about hospital based fees).
As you can see, the professionals and staff of Colorado Center for Digestive Disorders and Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC have a proven track record over 20 years. The practice has a well-earned, and well documented, reputation of outstanding care, dedication to our patients and the highest standards of the practice of medicine and "giving back" to our community.
We want you to feel confident with your choice of practitioners here at Colorado Center for Digestive Disorders and Colorado Endoscopy Centers, LLC.
