The physicians are keenly interested in colon cancer screening, surveillance and prevention. Colonoscopy is a safe outpatient procedure recommended for all adults over 50. The colonoscopy procedure is both diagnostic and therapeutic. So it can actually remove the problems, such as precancerous colon polyps it finds, effectively preventing colon cancer. In the event that your colonoscopy reveals any abnormality, you’ll be in excellent hands at DCRC.

- Mild to severe diarrhea
- Abdominal pain
- Rectal bleeding, sometimes leading to anemia
- Weight loss, dehydration & malnutrition
