Procedure Prep

How to Prepare for your procedure

Preparing for Colonoscopy

The course you take to prepare for your colonoscopy will depend on your gastroenterologist, but all patients should prepare to cleanse the bowel completely beforehand and arrange for a ride home – as driving is not allowed for 24 hours following the procedure.

Your Northeast Digestive Health Center provider will provide specific prep instructions at your consultation. The three primary courses ordered for colonoscopy procedure preparation are:
Suprep Instructions (PDF)
Miralax/Gatorade Instructions (PDF)

Preparing for Endoscopy

Endoscopic procedures vary in terms of invasiveness, uses and capabilities. Your doctor will provide prep instructions prior to your procedure. The following are procedure prep instructions for the primary types of endoscopy used by Northeast Digestive Health Center’s gastroenterologists:
EGD (Upper Endoscopy) (PDF)
EUS (Endoscopic Ultrasound) (PDF)
ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography) (PDF)

Preparing for FibroScan®

It is important to have your FibroScan® examination on an empty stomach. Do not eat anything for at least 3 hours prior to your examination. Wear comfortable clothes that will allow access to the right side of your rib cage. It is important to tell your health care provider if you are pregnant, or if you have any active implantable devices, such as pacemakers, defibrillators or pumps.

*Please note: In order to schedule this procedure, your primary care physician must refer you.

FibroScan® is FDA-approved for clinical management of patients with liver disease and is covered by most insurance carriers. FibroScan® probes are adapted to most body-types patients and to all ages, from pediatric to adults. For more information about this procedure, please contact Northeast Digestive Health Center at (704) 783-1840.

Our Policies

Charity Care Policy

Charity Care:
For the purpose of this policy, charity care is defined as a patient having no financial ability to cover the expenses for needed and scheduled procedures. This determination will be made by the physician providing the services and does not necessarily require level of income documentation. Income documentation may be required at the physician’s discretion in collaboration with the Practice Manager.

Patients will be accepted and treated on an as needed basis upon referral from primary care physicians that we normally receive referrals from within our demographic regions. We will also consider direct referrals for procedures from charitable organizations in the community.


Private Pay / Self Pay:
Private pay / self pay is defined as the patient who does have the financial ability to pay all or part of the expenses for needed or scheduled procedures. This includes patients who have health insurance, but choose not to file their expense through their health insurance and prefer to self pay for the procedure.

The determination of the fee schedule for private pay patients assumes that the patient is responsible for some or all the incurred expenses. Self-pay patients will receive a 25% discount based off the charge amount for all procedures (EGD, Colonoscopy, ERCP, etc.). New office visits will cost $200.00 and established office visits will cost $100.00 per visit. This determination has been approved by the governing board and may change from time to time. The practice will discuss this with patients before their procedure or office visit.
