Gastroenterology Associates have expanded its digestive health care services to patients living north of the capital region with the opening of a new Zachary office, 4735 West Park Drive, Suite A, on the campus of Lane Regional Medical Center.

Doctors Kirk Mullins, Alan Maltbie and Douglas Walsh specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal and digestive disorders.

The three physicians will see patients by appointment Monday and Thursday mornings, according to a news release.

The new location reduces travel time for appointments and treatment while increasing the likelihood of proper diagnosis and care for local residents by bringing specialized gastrointestinal services and procedures to the region that were not previously available, the release said.

Gastroenterology Associates and its specialized team of 17 physicians have provided gastroenterological care in Baton Rouge since 1977, according to the release.
