We specialize in diagnosing and treating patients with diseases and disorders affecting the digestive tract, including the liver, pancreas and gallbladder.

Preparing for Your Endoscopic Procedure

Before you have an endoscopic procedure at one of our facilities, you should speak to your physician about what medicines you are taking to determine whether you should stop them before your procedure.

To prepare for your procedure, please view the Emmi® program—an online educational program about endoscopy. If you did not receive information about how to access this program, contact the office that scheduled your procedure for assistance.

Please follow the instructions given by your provider or the scheduling department. You should follow the instructions for "history of constipation" if:

  • You have ever had a history of constipation.
  • You do not have daily bowel movements and/or you take medicines or treatments to have a bowel movement.

Please follow the instructions below that apply to you.

Any medicine or treatment used at any interval (even once per week) qualifies you as a "history of constipation" patient.
