Colonoscopies for early cancer detection

Adults over age 50 (or 45 if African American) should receive a colonoscopy every 10 years, to age 75. The screening can detect colon and rectal cancer early, when it's easier to treat, improving your chances of a full recovery.

Screening simplified: We offer direct access to screening colonoscopies to qualified patients, saving you time and money. We also offer Saturday screenings at many locations.

Great experience:

Patient Cindy described her colonoscopy as "go to sleep, wake up and it's done."
