Thank you for choosing Gannamaneni Gastroenterology. We look forward to caring for you. The following information is important so we can provide high quality care for all of our patients.
Office Cancellations: We require a 24-hour cancellation notice. If you do not provide adequate notice then a $40 fee will be billed to you directly. This fee is not billable to insurance and payment is due immediately.
Surgery Cancellations: Your procedure requires an anesthesiologist, clinical staff and the use of a surgical suite. Our office will coordinate all of this for you. If you are unable to keep the appointment, it is imperative that you cancel 72-hours in advance. If you fail to provide adequate notice, we reserve the right to charge you a fee of $100, which is not billable to your insurance and due immediately.
No-Show Fee: When you do not show up, it creates an unused appointment slot that could have been used for another patient. There is a $50 fee for a no-show. The no-show charge must be paid by the patient and cannot be billed to insurance.
Payment: We take the same insurance as other Unity partners. Some insurance plans require that you meet a deductible before they pay while others require a co-pay for visits. Please contact your insurance company to understand your financial responsibility. We collect co-pays at the time of service. We offer a 25% discount for self-pay patients and payment is collected at the time of service.
Prescriptions: Refill requests are processed Monday through Friday 8 am – 4 pm. The most effective way to request a prescription refill is through the Follow My Health patient portal.
What to Bring: Please bring your insurance card(s), photo ID, and medication list to your appointment. If you have had a colonoscopy or other scope in the past, please bring a report of the findings to your appointment.
A colonoscopy is an important screening tool in the fight against colon cancer. It is the most accurate test to detect colon polyps and colon cancer, and the only test where polyps can be removed. This brochure explains your role in the prevention of colon cancer.
Colonoscopy Prep Instructions
To produce the best results, you will drink a bowel cleansing preparation to help clean out your colon. Even if your stools are clear, it is important to take all of the colon prep as directed because your body is always making fluid and small polyps can hide behind this fluid. Please follow our instructions as indicated below:
About Your Colonoscopy
During the procedure, a doctor examines the lining of your large intestine and rectum through a flexible tube called a colonoscope. The colonoscope is inserted into the anus and advanced slowly through the colon. If abnormal tissue or polyps are found, the physician may remove them through the colonoscope for closer examination or biopsy.
