Fast Track Colonoscopy
Fast-Track Colonoscopy is a service we provide that allows healthy, age-appropriate patients to easily schedule a colonoscopy, usually without a pre-procedure visit. The Fast-Track Colonoscopy service saves the patient both time and money (no additional office visit or copay). By completing this Fast-Track request form, your information will be sent to the physician of your choice.
Colonoscopy is advised for all average-risk patients, age 50 and older, as a method of colon cancer screening. Roughly 1 in 23 men and 1 in 25 women will develop colon cancer in their lifetime.
Patients with significant illnesses (poorly controlled diabetes, significant cardiac disease, severe breathing problems, kidney problems) are advised to schedule a consultation prior to the procedure. If you have underlying abdominal pain, changes in bowel habits, or any other gastrointestinal issues, a Fast-Track Colonoscopy may not be the best initial examination for you. To ensure the highest quality care, we request that 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 click here to complete and submit the Fast-Track Colonoscopy 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 instructions for your colonoscopy. We look forward to participating in your care.
