Procedure Preparation Instructions
Preparation for EGD requires an empty stomach. You must be fasting prior to the procedure, and some further instructions regarding blood thinners and having a ride. Preparation for a colonoscopy involves a restricted diet, drinking the prep with the goal of clearing the colon, fasting prior to the procedure, and some further instructions regarding blood thinners and having a ride.
These are general copies of the instructions for the different preparation medications that we usually prescribe. Please adhere to the specific instructions that were given to you by your provider. If you have been told to do a 2-day prep, contact our office for the appropriate instructions. DO NOT follow the instructions listed on the medication.
Please reach out to our office for location confirmation and COVID-19 guidelines. A Covid-19 test may be required prior to your procedure, even if you have been fully vaccinated. (We will keep you updated on this as Covid-19 protocols keep changing).
