Direct Colon Screening


What is Colonoscopy?

Direct colon screening is a convenient way to schedule a colonoscopy without seeing us in the office first. Colon
cancer screening with colonoscopy starting at age 45 is a very important step in maintaining your health. After all,
colon cancer is the second highest cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. Colonoscopy is a safe, painless, 30-minute
