Open Access Colonoscopy is a service we provide that allows heal
thy, age-appropriate patients to easily schedule a colonoscopy usually without a pre-procedure visit.
Colonoscopy is advised for all average-risk patients, age 50
and older, as a method of colon cancer screening. Patients with significant illness es (poorly controlled diabetes, significant cardiac disease, severe brea thing problems, kidney problems) are advised to schedule a consultation prior to the procedure.
The physician will have very limited time to discuss past medical his
tory or ongoing problems at the time of the Open Access procedure. If you have underlying abdominal pain, changes in bowel habits, or any other
gastrointestinal issues, an Open Access Colonoscopy may not be the bes
t in itial examination for you. To ensure the highest quality care, we request individuals with these issues schedule a regular clinic visit prior
to any procedure.
If you are in good health and wish to proceed to scheduling your
procedure, please complete and submit the Open Access request form.
Once submitted, you will be contacted within two to three business days
by our staff to review your history, obtain a prescription for the bowel
preparation, and receive final instructions for your colonoscopy.
