We will perform on-site COVID testing before every procedure
When we resume endoscopy services, we will screen all patients for COVID-19 at a separate, on-site visit right here in our office. The test will be administered by nursing personnel from Mobile Anesthesia of Chicago and billed directly through LabCorp. You do not need to go to the hospital (and potentially be exposed to high risk patients there). We are planning on seeing one patient at a time, keeping our waiting room empty, and we ask for your cooperation to protect the safety of all our patients.
Multiple GI societies have been involved in making the decision on how to resume endoscopy safely, chief among them the @AmCollegeGastro,
@AmerGastroAssn, and @ASGEendoscopy.
