ABOUT CPE

LEADERS IN DIGESTIVE HEALTH SCREENING IN THE MISSISSAUGA AREA

Founded in 2009, Canadian Place Endoscopy has quickly become a respected outpatient clinic dedicated to performing colonoscopies and gastroscopies in a professional and relaxing environment. Through open and honest communication, exceptional diagnosis and compassionate care, Dr. Sundeep Rai and his associates work hard to provide their patients with the high-quality healthcare service they deserve. At Canadian Place Endoscopy, we understand that having your digestive tract — including the colon, esophagus, stomach and small intestine — screened for cancer or other diseases or disorders is the last thing you want to consider. But we also know that accurate screening is the most effective way to prevent colorectal cancer or detect other gastrointestinal conditions that can’t be diagnosed in any other way.

That’s why we are committed to providing the most timely, innovative, comfortable and minimally invasive diagnostic services and treatment available.
