EMERGENCY SERVICES

Emergency rooms are  the first line of defense for accidents, allergic reactions, and

many urgent medical situations. The ER works swiftly to triage each patient, prioritize care based on the severity of the condition, stabilize, and treat the patient.  Triage ensures the patients who need lifesaving treatment are seen before those presenting a less serious condition. Once the stabilized, the patient will be either discharged, admitted for a hospital stay or transferred to another facility.

GASTROENTEROLOGY

When should you have a colonoscopy?

If you have no colorectal symptoms, family history of colon cancer, polyps or inflammatory bowel disease you should have your first exam at age 50 whether you are a man or a woman since colon cancer affects both equally. Recent evidence suggests that African Americans should begin screening earlier at the age of 45.

If one or more first degree relative (parent, sibling or child) has had a precancerous polyp or colon cancer, the general guideline is to begin colon cancer screening 10 years younger than the youngest age of the family member with colon cancer, or age 40, whichever is younger. There are additional guidelines for suspected or confirmed rare syndromes, and you should discuss these options with your doctor.

Patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, should begin screening for colon cancer 8 – 10 years after the initial diagnosis.
