Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program®
Colorectal cancer is the #2 cancer killer in the U.S. The good news? It’s highly preventable and has a high cure rate if caught early in a screening colonoscopy.
We have streamlined this potentially life-saving procedure for patients in the Tucson, Arizona area with the Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program at Arizona Digestive Institute. Schedule today by calling us at (520) 547-5847.
Our Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program is a no-hassle, lower-cost, and patient-centered approach to colon cancer screening:
- No referral needed – you do not need to visit your physician before your screening colonoscopy
- Schedule directly with Arizona Digestive Institute and one of our board-certified specialists will perform your colonoscopy
- Most insurances will cover this preventative service 100%
The American Cancer Society recommends that people at average risk of colorectal cancer start regular screenings at age 45. A colonoscopy is a simple, diagnostic test which looks for polyps and cancer of the colon. Colonoscopies take about 30 minutes, during which time you will be comfortably sedated. Most patients report a positive experience and return to normal activities and diet the next day.
Are you ready? Three easy steps:
Ask your primary care physician about the Direct Screen Colonoscopy Program at Arizona Digestive Institute or call us directly at (520) 547-5847 to schedule.
Before your scheduled screening colonoscopy, a nurse from Arizona Digestive Institute will call you to ask about your prior medical history and discuss pre-op instructions – this is when you learn how to clean your colon before the colonoscopy.
On the day of your screening colonoscopy, you show up and we do the rest!
There is no reason to wait or hesitate – it’s your life, be around to live it. Schedule your colorectal cancer screening colonoscopy by calling us at (520) 547-5847.
