How Uncomfortable is a Colonoscopy?

Testimonials

This is my second colonoscopy and I was amazed at the speed and efficiency of the entire process. Check-in to departure was about 1.5 hours- I don’t think you can do this much faster. Dr. Cranford’s staff was extremely efficient- the final preparation prior to anesthesia administration was like watching an orchestra. Everything was well-coordinated and there was not wasted or non-value added steps in the process that I could tell. Very well done!
