Knowing that your time is important, we have developed an efficient process for scheduling your colonoscopy. Once we receive a referral from your primary care physician, we will contact you to schedule your procedure at the Direct Access Colonoscopy Clinic.
Before your appointment, an endoscopy nurse will call you to discuss the procedure and how to prepare for it. The nurse will be glad to answer all of your questions. On the day of your colonoscopy, your physician will talk with you before the procedure and will answer any final questions you have. Registered nurses with advanced training will assist the doctor with your exam and monitor your safety.
Because you will be given medications to help you relax, it won’t be safe for you to drive home after your procedure. Please make arrangements to have a driver accompany you to this appointment.
Colon Cancer Surgery
Surgery is the most common treatment for all stages of colon cancer.
A colonoscopy helps identify the causes of colorectal conditions and can aid in cancer treatment and prevention.
In order to treat symptoms like abdominal pain, inflammation, ulcers and digestive tumors, your doctor could recommend an esophagogastroduodenoscopy.
