I am so thankful that such an offer is available for those without insurance. Very affordable tests for colon cancer screening. The entire experience was so effortless for me. They made it so easy and did all they advertised to do. They guided me every step of the way.
As I don’t have health insurance, I was pleased to learn about Colonoscopy Assist. Had it not been for my girlfriend, a former RN, I would have been unaware of your service. By working through Colonoscopy Assist, I have saved at least $500 versus a straight private pay. In addition, my last colonoscopy was well over a decade ago. Due to the number of polyps removed, I was instructed to return in 5 years. Had it not been for your services, I would have delayed this procedure even longer. Thankfully, there were no polyps this time. I now have peace of mind on which I cannot put a price.
You saved my life. Seriously. I am 46 but have a family history of colon cancer. When my brother had malignant polyps, I got a referral from my doctor. Our insurance doesn’t cover colonoscopy so I would have had to pay $4600 out of pocket. Yikes. Found this site and made the appointment. Out of pocket costs were much more manageable, and the entire process worked as stated. A cancerous mass was found, so now I am getting treated. Otherwise I would never have known until it was too late. Thank you Colonoscopy Assist.
I’m very grateful for the service Colonoscopy Assist provides. Being able to have a colonoscopy at a significantly reduced rate was a real blessing. As advertised, I only paid the flat rate they stated from the outset. Due to a conflict, I had to reschedule my original procedure appointment but Colonoscopy Assist was able help me with this process. The doctor and his staff were very professional and everything went very well on the day of my procedure. Colonoscopy Assist provided helpful communication throughout the entire process, from my initial registration to my final procedure results!
Everything went smoothly and professionally as promised. There was no problem at check in and the facilty and staff were excellent and very caring.
We would use this program again for sure.
Operators were awesome. Quick to help me get appointment setup and walked me through what I needed to do. Pleasure dealing with them.
Great program! Very well done and organized. I got screened and it saved me a lot of money.
Everyone at the office was professional and friendly. It was very easy to make the appointment and the procedure went well. I appreciate the opportunity to have a colonoscopy at a much more affordable price. Thank you Colonoscopy Assist.
ColonoscopyAssist made the process very easy. The payment option really helped out and the discounted rate also. I was scheduled with a great provider who I actually used years prior through my insurance at the time. Great people to deal with and their program is extremely helpful.
From the moment I walked in and filled out paperwork to preparing for procedure. Everything went like clockwork. Will visit again in 5 years.
very simple, very thorough. They keep you well informed and check up on you too
Professional staff, very efficient, it was nice to have the doctor call to check on me after procedure. I highly recommend this facility…
This is a great and affordable way to get it done. I traveled 140 miles, but it was worth it. The facility and the doctor were nothing but top-notch. No difference in treatment or care than if you had the best insurance. I will definitely go back, and will recommend ColonscopyAssist to family and friends.
Used your program 5 years ago. Was very satisfied then. You contacted me with a reminder for five year checkup. Thank you. You helped get appt. with a facility closest to us. They were very nice staff and doctor was great. Again, thank you for your assistance in helping us out.
Colonoscopy/Assist was the best thing that happened for me. With family history of colon cancer I was long over due to do my first screening. Getting several quotes from several doctors I was looking at the unaffordable fees. When I contacted Colonoscopy/ Assist I was given the price that I could afford (a flat fee with no hidden fees)
very simple, very thorough. They keep you well informed and check up on you too
