Primary Endoscopy

Healthy people can avoid a consultation with our doctors and directly schedule a colonoscopy.
New Medicare regulations now mandate that a physical exam must be done within 30 days prior to your procedure.

In the past we have conducted a telephone interview followed by an exam on the day of your procedure. If you have had an exam performed by your own health care professional within 30 days, you can take advantage of this program. If you have not had an exam, a member of our medical staff will schedule an appointment with you and perform an exam at no charge to you, to meet this government mandated requirement.

Please answer these questions to see if you qualify:

  • Over age 80?
  • History of Congestive Heart Failure?
  • Angina with recent chest pain or shortness of breath?
  • History of COPD - Emphysema - Asbestosis - Have Oxygen (O2)?
  • Sleep apnea?

  • On any blood thinners? (Plavix-Coumadin)?
  • Are you an Insulin Dependent Diabetic?
  • Any Organ Transplants?
