No more excuses for putting off your colonoscopy

September Saturday appointment dates

Of all the excuses for putting off a screening colonoscopy, one of the most common is a busy schedule. At Digestive Health Specialists, we understand. For our patient’s convenience, we made Saturday appointments available at our Thomasville Procedure Center in August. We are happy to say that our schedule was filled, so we decided to provide Saturday appointments again in September.

The upcoming Saturday appointment dates are:

  • September 14
  • September 28

Why do our providers think this is important?

“At Digestive Health, we want to provide the best value to our patients. Value includes not only excellent care but also have timely access to our providers including appointments on selected Saturdays.”

“Providing access to healthcare on a Saturday requires a sacrifice of our providers and staff. Yet we realize that our patients work hard Monday through Friday and while they value their health, they have limited time to care for themselves. We are happy to provide this additional opportunity to prevent colon cancer in our community.”

– Dr. Murat Akdamar
