About Fall Hill Gastroenterology Associates
At FHGA we are dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive care for gastrointestinal and liver disorders in Fredericksburg and its surrounding communities.
Fall Hill Gastroenterology Associates was the first gastroenterology practice in Fredericksburg.
Founded in 1988 by Dr. John Boniface, Jr. and then joined by Dr. David Monahan in 1993 and Dr. Thomas Mastri in 2000. Dr. Boniface has retired. Dr. Lawrence Comerford joined us in 2019.
FHG Endoscopy Center
Diagnostic and screening colonoscopy and upper intestinal endoscopy are provided to our patients at the Center. Since opening in 2009, the Center has maintained a program of excellence as documented with our commitment to meeting all the credentialing requirements of the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC).
FHGA has partnered with Somnia (Fredericksburg Anesthesia Services) to provide anesthesia during your endoscopic procedure.
The pathology program integrates the services provided by our gastroenterologists with in-house quality diagnostic interpretation of endoscopic tissue specimens. Fall Hill Gastroenterology Pathology Lab is certified by The Joint Commission.
