Preparing for Procedure

Please read the detailed instructions for your procedure by selecting one below.

SCREENING FOR COVID-19 PRIOR TO PROCEDURES: To help ensure a safe procedure experience, all patients who are not fully vaccinated or have not had a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 in the past 3 months are required to have a COVID-19 PCR or ANTIGEN NASAL SWAB test within 3-5 days prior to a colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, or flexible sigmoidoscopy. We will help you arrange this. Prior nasal swab test results cannot be used if they were not done within 5 days of the procedure. Antibody test results also cannot be used in the place of a COVID-19 nasal swab.

Patients who are fully vaccinated (defined as being two or more weeks after receiving the final dose) or those with confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 in the past 3 months, but greater than the past two (2) weeks (and no present symptoms) are not required to take a pre-procedure COVID-19 test. Proof of vaccination (CDC card or Excelsior Pass) or proof of lab-confirmed COVID-19 is required at the time of the procedure.
