Gastroenterology Group

As a physician with skill and expertise in the field of Gastroenterology, obtained though years of experience, Dr. Catherine Murray founded the practice in 1984. She was committed to providing patients with the best possible medical care within reasonable and realistic cost.

To provide convenience and the best possible care to patients, two offices were established: one in Mandeville and the other in Slidell. Doctors Anthony Albright and Timothy Trainor joined the practice in 1991. All doctors treated patients from both offices. In 1998 Dr Felix Rabito Jr. joined the practice.

With the increase in patients and staff personnel associated with corporate growth, the Mandeville office was moved to a larger facility in the Timber Branch Subdivision in Covington. The EndoCenter LLC entity was founded in the fall of 1999 as an outpatient endoscopy center. The center provides a facility for our physicians to perform endoscopic procedures, which had been done primarily in a hospital setting.

Gastroenterology Group is an ever-expanding corporation which still maintains the goals of the original founder. In March 2003, a second location for the EndoCenter was opened in Slidell, which now houses both the office of Gastroenterology Group and the EndoCenter. In July 2006, Dr. Veronica Dugan joined the practice.
