Colon cancer is one of the top three cancer killers, but it doesn’t garner the same attention as some other cancers. As one of two preventable types of cancer with regular screenings, colon cancer remains the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women, but is not talked about enough.
Now Offering Saturday Appointments for Open Access Patients
Good news for Open Access patients – we’re now offering Saturday procedures. Through our Open Access program, healthy adults over the age of 50 who do not have any significant GI symptoms can schedule a colonoscopy without a preliminary office visit. Appointments will be offered from 8-11 a.m. one Saturday each month.
What to Know About Insurance and At-Home Colon Cancer Screenings
Colonoscopy remains the most sensitive test for detecting colon cancer; however, noninvasive colorectal cancer screenings (i.e. Cologuard) are also performed. Please be aware, for insurance billing purposes, that if a patient chooses a noninvasive test and that result is positive, then a subsequent colonoscopy is no longer considered a screening colonoscopy, but rather a diagnostic one.
