We Offer Direct Referrals for General Endoscopy Procedures
A direct referral is for patients who have straightforward concerns and are comfortable meeting the performing gastroenterologist for the first time the day of the procedure. This allows patients to skip a more general, routine first appointment, if desired.
For quick and easy access to routine endoscopy procedures,we offer direct referrals for the following procedures:
- Screening colonoscopy
- Surveillance colonoscopy for a prior history of colon polyps or history of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, etc.
- Surveillance of Barrett's Esophagus - EGD
When calling in a direct referral, please have available:
- Patient name
- Date of birth
- Patient phone number
- Recent copy of history and physical within the last 30 days
Please call in direct referrals between 8 am–4 pm, Monday–Friday.
Fax history and physical to 570-321-2424
It is our goal to have an appointment scheduled within two weeks after the direct referral is received.
