At Digestive Diseases Qld we offer an open access service.
This means that a patient can be referred for an endoscopy or colonoscopy and have the procedure done by the Doctor before having a consultation (if deemed appropriate by the specialist). The results are then sent through to the referring doctor within days. This is a convenient way of fast-tracking your diagnosis.
Our gastroenterology trained registered nurse can help you with all of your pre-op questions. All open-access colonoscopy patients are reviewed by our nurse.
Information for patients can be found below.
Preparation instructions for colonoscopies and fasting instructions for other procedures can also be found here.
