Patient satisfaction is extremely important at Ridgeline Endoscopy Center. Should you have a concern or complaint, please ask to speak to the manager or person in charge.

Screening colonoscopy vs diagnostic colonoscopy
If you are scheduled for a screening colonoscopy you may actually end up having a diagnostic procedure. Most insurance companies will only cover a screening as such if you have never had family history, personal history of polyps or cancer, or currently have any signs or symptoms (such as rectal bleeding, change in bowel habits, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain etc.). If your doctor finds a polyp or takes a biopsy for any reason, all of these will result in a diagnostic procedure. A diagnostic procedure will still be covered by your insurance; however, will be paid as your surgical benefit. Please contact your insurance prior to your procedure and ask for BOTH your screening and diagnostic benefits so that you are well informed. Insurance code states as a provider we are responsible to bill according to what the patient presents at the time of procedure and the findings of the physician.
If you have any questions regarding your colonoscopy preparation prescription and preparation instructions, or any medications you are taking, please call the physician’s office that will be performing your procedure.
