We partner with skilled and dedicated Advanced Practice Providers (APP) who share our commitment to delivering high-quality patient care.
As the premier GI practice management company, United Digestive places great value in the role of APPs to achieve the best in patient care. Our dedicated team of APPs is led by a practicing Director of APPs who not only leads the recruitment process and oversees evaluations but also spearheads the robust onboarding and training process.
United Digestive truly appreciates its APPs and goes to great lengths to make their role a fulfilling one, particularly through supporting APP autonomy. Opportunities for personal growth and development abound – we provide an extensive onboarding program, monthly CME opportunities, and a collaborative, team-based environment.
“The United Digestive APP program is one of the most robust programs in the country, it provides an opportunity for continuous medical education and mentorship. Our APPs have a rewarding career with personal growth and professional development.”

“United Digestive has provided me the opportunity to be surrounded by providers, both APPs and physicians, who not only embody excellence in patient care and up-to-date medical practice but also encourage my personal growth. As a new clinician, I am grateful to learn from individuals who advocate inquisitiveness and shared decision-making. I found this to be incredibly pertinent especially during the onboarding process to ensure my own success in providing quality care. I am looking forward to the years to come, and I am always striving for continued progress which is something I feel confident I will achieve with United Digestive.”
Madison O’Brien, PA-C
“As an APP, when we graduate, we all hope to find a workplace that provides space to learn, grow, and, most importantly, help others. After working for Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates for nearly 20 years, I can truly say that I am doing just that each and every day. United Digestive gives APPs the opportunity to thrive with the balance of independence and tons of support. The physicians I have been surrounded by are the best in the business and I feel so lucky to have found a place like AGA/UD to call home.”
Jaime Ackerman, PA-C
