Find Your Beverly Hills Gastroenterology Specialist Here

Does it seem like every year your doctor wants you to get more and more medical tests? You know these tests are necessary for maintaining your health. That’s especially true when you reach the age of 50 and your doctor tells you that it’s time to schedule your first colonoscopy. At the Beverly Hills Gastroenterology Institute of Southern California, we understand that many patients are hesitant to undergo this procedure. They are concerned that it may cause substantial discomfort or that they will receive unwanted news about cancer.

Let Us Help You Feel Safe

The more you learn about what a colonoscopy entails, the less apprehensive you will be about your procedure. Part of Dr. Berookim’s mission is to help educate patients throughout Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Hollywood. Colonoscopy is really a routine cancer screening test. When performed by a GI specialist, it is a low risk test that is highly effective at detecting and preventing colon cancer. Finding colon polyps (adenomas) is quite common. Most of these growths are harmless and early removal means you have eliminated their chance to become cancerous.  This procedure is always performed using appropriate sedation to ensure patient comfort.
