The dog days of summer are over and the cold is upon us. As the calendar year comes to an end, we tend to take a look back at what we completed throughout the year (or didn’t). That said, what’s one thing almost everyone 50 and up puts off until the end, only to regret not completing? If you said a colonoscopy screening, then you are right!
Throughout the year, we at Gastroenterology Associates of New Jersey (GANJ) do our best to educate the population on just how important it is to get a screening once you reach the age of 50. While some statistics are improving regarding screenings, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So, we are working hard to ensure patients know how vital screenings are through pieces like this and other methods of education.
It has always been our goal at GANJ to save a life, and a routine screening can do just that.
How do I schedule my screening?
Just because the year is ending doesn’t mean we slow down. We are here for our patients now, tomorrow and forever. A simple phone call to one of our convenient locations can start the process. From there, you will see one of our physicians for a consultation appointment to go over family history, current medical history and the prep kit.
Do all GANJ physicians screen for colon cancer?
Yes, all of our highly-trained physicians are available for a screening at your convenience. On our website, you can view each one of our doctor profile pages to learn a little more about them. That way, you can comfortably familiarize yourself with our physicians before even stepping into the room with them.
