Physicians Endoscopy (PE) is proud to announce a special time in its company history—Physicians Endoscopy’s 20th anniversary. In an era where healthcare changes are far too numerous to list, PE has been the leading gastroenterology development and management company—achieving two decades of exceptional expertise and substantial growth.
Physicians Endoscopy began operations in 1998 when it was organized as a Delaware limited liability company. Barry Tanner and Karen Sablyak, the company’s respective CEO and CFO, joined the company in 1999 and are considered to be the founders of PE—co-writing the business plan that has evolved into what exists as Physicians Endoscopy today. “PE’s journey started as a little company sitting in a small office writing a business plan with one critical mission—to be the leader in supporting the single specialty of gastroenterology. It was a bold idea to dedicate an entire organization to only one specialty, but it was our strategic vision to do one thing and do it really well”, said Barry Tanner, Physician Endoscopy’s CEO.Read More
