  • How to Prepare

  • Your physician's office will give you special instructions to prepare you for your procedure. If you have questions about the instructions, please contact your physician's office. It is important that you follow the instructions to ensure an adequate study.

    Prior to your procedure, please let your physician know if you are taking insulin, iron or blood thinners such as Coumadin, aspirin or aspirin-like products. Please let your physician know if you require antibiotics prior to dental examinations, since you might need antibiotics prior to your colonoscopy.

    On the day of your procedure, please bring a list of the prescribed and over-the-counter medications you are currently taking.

    What will happen on the day of my exam?
