How to Prepare

Getting Ready for Your Colonoscopy
Expect a phone call 7 to 10 days prior to your scheduled colonoscopy from the preadmission department. They will review your health history and medications, and ensure you understand your bowel prep instructions. If your bowel prep requires a prescription, your preadmission nurse will send it to your preferred pharmacy.

Bowel Prep Information Packets are listed below. Choose your preferred prep and click on the link for detailed instructions on how to prepare for your colonoscopy, as well as what to expect before and after the procedure. You may review online or download and print.

It is vital to follow the exact directions in order to fully cleanse your colon for the exam. If you don't, your colonoscopy may have to be cancelled or repeated.
