OPEN-ACCESS PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Screening is a test for early diagnosis of common cancers before symptoms develop.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths at a 5-6 percent lifetime risk.

The current recommendation for colon cancer screening by the American Cancer Society is a colonoscopy starting at the age of 50. Future examinations are planned based on the findings.

Open Access Colonoscopy allows healthy patients without Exclusion Criteria to receive a screening colonoscopy without an initial office visit.
