Colonoscopy Exams

In order to have a successful colonoscopy, you must carefully prepare your body. Please follow these instructions as you prepare for your exam (Specific laxative instructions are at the end of this page):
  • The endoscopy staff will call you the day before of the procedure to let you know what time you should arrive. If you have not received the call by 1 p.m. on the day before your procedure, please give us a call at (801) 501-6488. 
  • A preregistration nurse will call you a few days before your procedure to obtain a general health history. It will take about 10 minutes. You may be asked to give a urine specimen if you are a female of childbearing age. We will be calling to pre-authorize your procedure if it is needed, however; It is up to you to check with your insurance to verify the level of coverage for the procedure, doctor and facility. We are only required to pre-authorize primary insurance only. If you have a secondary insurance it will be your responsibility to notify them. 
  • Finding us. When you come into the Alta View Specialty Center, the reception desk is to the left of the staircase and has a sign that says “Alta View North Surgical and Endoscopy Center.”
