We have several options for preparing your lower intestines for colonoscopy.  Please find your specific preparation formulation below and click to print.  Please read the instructions carefully.  Good luck!


 

Colonoscopy

  • FIND A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND TO DRIVE YOU HOME AFTER YOUR COLONOSCOPY.  You cannot operate a vehicle until the day after your procedure because of lingering effects of the anesthesia.  We cannot perform the procedure without a ride.  Taxis or ride-sharing services (Uber, Lyft, etc) are not allowed.  Your ride should stay throughout the procedure.
  • ONE WEEK BEFORE YOUR COLONOSCOPY PLEASE PURCHASE YOUR PREPARATION.  Please call our office at 978-459-6737 if you have any trouble obtaining your medication.
  • PLEASE ARRIVE ONE HOUR BEFORE YOUR COLONOSCOPY.  Despite our best efforts to perform your procedure on time, unexpected delays and emergencies can sometimes occur.  On the other hand, if we are running ahead of schedule, we can attempt to perform your procedure earlier.  Please keep your phone near you the morning of your procedure so we can notify you of delays and earlier appointment times.
  • The following videos from a GI practice in Arizona describes how to take the Suprep, Miralax, MoviPrep, and Nulytely preparations.
