Direct Access Colonoscopy

Are you due for your colonoscopy? Do you need a screening colonoscopy? No time for an office visit? We can help.

Our office has a direct access colonoscopy program where patients and / or referring physicians can request a screening colonoscopy without patients having to take time out of their busy schedule to have an office visit prior to the procedure.

How the process works:

Step 1: Patient may notify us by initiating the Direct Access process electronically by clicking here or calling the office to let us know of their interest. Alternatively, the patient may ask their primary care doctor to send our office a referral on their behalf.
Step 2: We will ask you to complete health history paperwork
Step 3: We will collect records from your primary care physician
Step 4: One of our physicians will review the information
Step 5: We call you to schedule the colonoscopy as soon as the review is complete
Step 6: You have your colonoscopy

Who qualifies for this process?

  • Patients 45 and older who need a screening colonoscopy
  • Patients with a family history of colon or rectal cancer
  • Patients who have had polyps themselves or had colon or rectal cancer themselves

Patients with symptoms such as rectal bleeding and abdominal pain, may need to be evaluated by one of our physicians prior to colonoscopy to make sure that colonoscopy is the best and safest test for them.
