There are times when your doctor chooses a Flexible Sigmoidoscopy over a Colonoscopy or other diagnostic procedure.
What is a Flexible Sigmoidoscopy?
A Flexible Sigmoidoscopy (sometimes referred to as a flex sig) is different from a colonoscopy in that it only examines the sigmoid colon (lower portion of the bowel).
Why would I need a Flexible Sigmoidoscopy?
Some common reasons for this procedure is rectal bleeding, certain types of pain or changes in bowel habits.
Will my insurance cover this procedure?
We accept many forms of insurance and also offer a cash-pay option for patients who don’t have insurance or would prefer to pay for their procedure directly. For more information on cash/self-pay pricing, please contact our office.
As a reminder, if choosing cash/self-pay, payment is due at time of the procedure. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, VISA and Mastercard.
