In brief: Depends
Some states like new york, require special certification to do enodscopies in offices and clinics.
Otherwise, endoscopies are performed in the hospital.

In brief: Depends on the doc
Most people have their endoscopies performed by gastroenterologists who are specially trained to perform these procedures.
If it is a simple endoscopy and you are relatively healthy, these can be done in the clinic. More difficult cases are done in the hospital.
