Preparing for your Procedure

  • Carefully read and follow the pre-procedure instructions provided by your physician for the specific exam you are having. Preparation instructions for a Colonoscopy and Upper Endoscopy are different so it is important to follow the instructions specific to your procedure for the safety and quality of the examination you receive.
  • Carefully follow the instructions you are provided regarding when you should stop solid food and liquids.  No liquids, hard candy, gum, mints or any form of tobacco for at least 3 hours prior to your procedure.  Failure to follow these instructions will cause your procedure to be delayed or cancelled.
  • If you must cancel your procedure, please contact your physician’s office at least two days in advance.
  • Your physician will inform you if any of your medications should be stopped prior to your procedure.
  • Our staff will call you the day before your procedure to confirm your arrival time.
  • Allow for some flexibility in the time of your procedure.  Your appointment time may need to be adjusted if unplanned events occur.
  • Dress comfortably and wear clothing that will allow you to change into a gown easily.
  • Bring a list of your current medications, including name and dosage.  Multivitamins, herbal products and other over-the-counter medications should be included.
  • Bring your insurance card, payment obligation, and driver’s license or photo I.D.
  • Leave all valuables, including jewelry, wallet and additional cash at home.


  • DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE yourself home or use public transportation after your procedure. Make arrangements in advance  for responsible adult to drive you home and remain with you for 4 to 6 hours following your procedure.  If you arrive at the facility without a responsible adult to provide transportation, your procedure will have to be rescheduled for another day.  TAXI SERVICE, UBER, OR OTHER PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IS NOT PERMITTED.
