Specialists That Specialize in You

It’s always our primary goal to protect your whole health, and colon cancer is preventable if you take the right steps with your trusted health care partner. Colorectal cancer screenings, often known as colonoscopies, can be life-saving by finding and removing pre-cancerous polyps before they turn into cancer. 

That said, colonoscopy is the single-most-important thing you can do to prevent colorectal cancer. Regular screening is recommended beginning at age 45 or sooner if you have a family history of colorectal disease.

 The first step you can take is knowing your colorectal cancer risk with our quick online assessment.
