Be Well

A simpler way:
 For those who qualify, our digestive health team offers you direct access to a screening colonoscopy - saving you a trip to the gastroenterologist. We also offer Saturday appointments at many locations.

Who needs a colonoscopy
: Screening colonoscopies are recommended for women and men every 10 years, beginning at age 50, or at age 45 for African Americans. If you have a family history of colon cancer or rectal cancer, talk to your doctor about whether you might benefit from earlier or more frequent screenings.
