AGMG has offices in Anaheim and in Orange, California . We are affiliated with AGMG Endoscopy Center, which is a state of the art facility with AAAHC accreditation and Medicare certification. The endoscopy center is equipped with the newest and finest endoscopic equipment and is staffed with an experienced nursing team. It is one of the few centers in the nation to have an anesthesiologist available full time. This allows us to offer Propofol deep sedation (which can only be delivered by an Anesthesiologist) and it provides the ultimate in patient comfort and safety.
