Will I be sedated for the procedures? Yes, you will be sedated during your procedure. In most cases the sedative used is Propofol. Can I drive myself home after the procedure? No, you may not drive yourself home.
No, you may not take a taxi home. Taxi drivers will only drop you off curbside. Since you will be sedated for your procedure, someone will need to ensure that you make it inside your home safely. How long does the procedure take? You will be at the Endoscopy Center for approximately two to three hours. Most procedures take about 15-30 minutes.
Will I need time off from work? We recommend you take a half day off from work the day before your procedure to complete the bowel prep. You will need to take the entire day off the day of your procedure. You may return to work the day after your procedure. Of note: If you are scheduled for an Endoscopy only, you will only need to take the day of your procedure off from work. Do I need a referral to be seen?
No you do not need a referral to be seen. Will my insurance cover my procedure? It depends on the provisions of your policy. As a courtesy our authorizations department will verify your benefits and obtain an authorization from your insurance if needed. They will inform you of any deductible or co insurance amounts that will be due. Can I use something else besides Gatorade? We recommend Smart Water which you can find at any grocery store or pharmacy. It also has electrolytes to keep you hydrated. The Dulcolax is causing some abdominal cramping, is this normal?
