History of Harford Gastroenterology Associates
In 1983 Dr. Ashok Narang opened the doors of Harford Gastroenterology Associates at our first location in Forest Hill, Maryland. Over the years, the practice grew to include an ambulatory surgery center, the current day Harford Endoscopy Center.
In 2010 Harford GI expanded into Havre de Grace and opened a second location. Today both Harford GI and the Harford Endoscopy Center have offices in Bel Air, Maryland.
Harford GI patients who need hospital based care are scheduled for procedures at the Upper Chesapeake Medical Center.
Patients not requiring hospital based care are scheduled for procedures at our sister practice, the Harford Endoscopy Center, an AMSURG-affiliated ambulatory surgery center for colonoscopy and EGD procedures on an outpatient basis.
