Physicians and Staff

The physicians who work at the GI Lab are experts in their field, and all have been part of the hospital’s medical staff for an average of more than 10 years. Assisting them are a team of interventional radiologists, nurses, diagnostic technologists and support staff, all of whom have special training and experience in GI procedures.

Because of the expertise and experience of our physicians and staff, the complication rate of procedures in Torrance Memorial's GI Lab is extremely low.


A physician's order is necessary to schedule procedures in the Endoscopy Center, located in the East Wing basement. Outpatient procedures are scheduled Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM. A waiting room is available to accommodate family members of patients.
