Caring for our Community and beyond

October 28, 2015

Borland-Groover Clinic believes everyone in our community deserves the same quality care, and often times our specialized care is out of reach for many patients in need. Borland-Groover Clinic is very proud to coordinate free medical treatment through a volunteer network, We Care Jacksonville, so that no one in need goes without care. Borland-Groover Clinic physicians often extend care beyond our community, outside the country, so that individuals that are in desperate need of medical treatment receive the care they need.

Here are a few ways that we show how much we care:

Providing care to individuals in Cambodia - Dr. Kyle Etzkorn with a team from Borland-Groover Clinic traveled to Cambodia to provide the first ERCP.

Dr. Etzkorn & Dr. Tek assisted in setting up a new hospital and provided endoscopic training to Cambodia-based doctors. Our team donated new medical equipment and supplies needed to staff a free-standing center, called the Borland-Groover Endoscopic Center, for patients in need of gastroenterology care. During the trip, our physicians performed the first Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatogram in the region. More
