Gastrointestinal Associates has developed a program which allows healthy individuals to schedule screening colonoscopy without the need for an office visit before the procedure. If your physician has suggested that you have a colonoscopy you may qualify for this program.
Of course, not all patients will be able to safely undergo colonoscopy without a more detailed evaluation of their health history and their risks for the procedure. If that is the case for you, we will help you schedule an office visit so that a physician can review your medical history, assess your current condition, and determine how to best meet your health needs.
Please fill out the Open Access Colonoscopy Questionnaire and return it by mail or fax (215-572-1279). Your information will be reviewed by our staff and you will be contacted within 2 weeks to schedule a colonoscopy or to arrange an office visit with one of our physicians. Please note that we require information from previous colonoscopies (including a copy of both the procedure report and biopsy reports) in order to determine if colonoscopy is the right test for you at this time.
