Digestive Specialists offers 1-Step Colonoscopies for patients who meet the Phone Explanation criteria below.
What is 1-Step Colonoscopy and a Phone Explanation?
1-Step Colonoscopy is a colonoscopy that does not require the patient to have an office or practice visit first. Instead of an office visit, patients schedule a Phone Explanation, which allows us to make sure we have your health history and provide you with instructions to prepare for your colonoscopy. During the Phone Explanation, we will schedule a date and time for your procedure.
What is the benefit of 1-Step Colonoscopy?
Patients save time by eliminating an additional office visit. If the patient has a co-pay, then 1-Step Colonoscopy reduces their out-of-pocket cost.
Who qualifies for 1-Step Colonoscopy?
Due to the elimination of the office or practice visit prior to the colonoscopy, only certain patients meet the 1-Step Colonoscopy criteria.
How do I schedule a Phone Explanation?
