Colorectal Office Visit Information

Preparing For Your Office Visit

    • Be able to describe your problem (including location of pain, duration of symptoms, previous treatment and response, etc.).
    • There is no need to skip meals – eat and drink as you normally would.
    • Take all of your usual medications.
    • Bring your current prescription bottles to the office or a list of all medications along with the strength and frequency prescribed.
    • Know any medications to which you are allergic.
    • Bring your pharmacy’s phone number.
    • Bring your current insurance card(s).
    • About 1 hour before leaving your home, take an Over- The- Counter (OTC) enema followed by a warm tap water enema, retaining both at the same time. Hold together in rectum for 2-3 minutes, then expel.
    • If you need to cancel an appointment, please call at least 24 hours in advance. Our phone number is (859) 278-6031.
