The GI Health Centre

Three exceptional and determined physicians founded the GI Health Centre in 2012.

Drs. Ching, Makhija and Marwaha’s vision for their Burlington clinic developed from months of working in other facilities with long wait lists and levels of care that did not meet the high expectations of the trio.

GIHC is committed to decreased wait times and state-of-the-art equipment, for both gastroscopy and colonoscopy, raising the level of GI health care services in southern Ontario and the GTA.
