Meet Our Providers

Our Clinic Services

  • We specialize in areas of digestive health such as acid reflux disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), esophageal disorders, colon cancer prevention, liver and biliary tract disease, hepatitis and pancreatic disease.
  • Procedures we perform include screening and diagnostic colonoscopies, upper endoscopy (EGD), flexible sigmoidoscopy, Bravo pH test, esophageal manometry, and video capsule endoscopy.

Colorectal Cancer Screening

Dr. Hicks and Dr. Patel provide screening colonoscopies at the North Hills Endoscopy Center. Screening is a very important preventative measure to catch cancer early before it advances to an incurable stage. Most colon cancers develop from adenomas which are a benign clump of cells that form inside the colon. If not removed at an early stage, these polyps can develop into colon cancer. For all average risk adults, screening is recommended to begin at 45 years, or earlier if you are at a higher risk of developing colon cancer (genetic predisposition or family history of colorectal cancer).


Please call us at 479.582.7230 to request an appointment. Some insurance plans require a referral from your primary physician. Please check with your plan and request a referral from your primary physician if it is required.

24/7 Care

If you have a medical problem that cannot wait until the next business day, Washington Regional has Urgent Care locations throughout Northwest Arkansas. If you need to reach a provider after hours, please call 479.463.1000 and ask to speak to the physician on call.

Prescription Refill

Patients who take critical prescription medications are advised to adhere to the schedule of lab and office visits recommended by their doctor. Please bring your medications, or a list of them, to your office visit and ask your doctor to write refills for any medications you anticipate needing.

Patients who have been seen by the doctor at appropriate intervals may call for refills on some prescriptions (antibiotics excluded). You may call your pharmacy 2 – 3 days prior to running out of medication so the pharmacy can fax a refill request to the clinic. Please allow 48 hours for refill requests. Requests received after 2:00 p.m. will be processed within the next two business days. Refills are done on Monday through Thursday.

Patients who use a mail order pharmacy plan will need to pick up written prescriptions from the clinic and mail them to their providing pharmacy.
