Colonoscopy for colon cancer screening is an underutilized resource. Only half of those over age 50 have undergone this potentially life-saving procedure. Some are fearful that the procedure may cause pain (it doesn’t) or are reluctant to undergo bowel preparation (it is much easier with the Gatorade bowel preparation). Others simply have a difficult time “fitting it into their schedule”.
To that end the physicians of Gateway Gastroenterology now offer intermittent Saturday hours at the Gateway Endoscopy Center. Work a full day on Friday and begin a bowel preparation in the evening. Undergo colonoscopy at the center on Saturday morning and return to work on Monday without taking any time off!
Call the office to schedule a Saturday appointment.
