Direct-access Colonoscopy

Direct-access Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is a life-saving screening that most people begin receiving at age 45. It allows doctors to find the earliest signs of cancer in the colon — and even remove pre-cancerous polyps that can grow into cancer.

Usually, colonoscopies begin with a visit to a digestive health specialist, or gastroenterologist.

Now, some people can save the time — and cost — of pre-procedure appointments with Tanner’s direct-access colonoscopy service.

Find out if you qualify for a direct-access colonoscopy by calling 770-812-9097.

How does direct-access colonoscopy work?

When you call the direct-access colonoscopy helpline, you’ll reach a clinician who will ask you a series of questions about your personal health history.

Those questions will help determine if you would be best served by meeting with a gastroenterologist before your screening or if you can go ahead and make a colonoscopy appointment.

Who qualifies for direct-access colonoscopy?

You may skip a pre-procedure appointment if you:

  • Are 45 or older
  • Are in good health
  • Have no family history of colorectal cancer
  • Have no chronic conditions that increase your risk (such as inflammatory intestinal conditions like IBS or Crohn’s disease)

Where are direct-access colonoscopies available?

Direct-access colonoscopies are only available at our West Georgia Endoscopy Center — outpatient center on Clinic Avenue in Carrollton.
