Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2013 -- With the recent New York Times article criticizing the excessive and convoluted fee associated with routine screening colonoscopy, the Los Angeles Endoscopy Center has announced a campaign titled “Affordable Excellence in Colonoscopy.”
Dr. Paul M. Choi, a board-certified gastroenterologist, who heads the Los Angeles Endoscopy Center points out that “despite proven track record of saving lives from colon cancer, many do not undergo colonoscopy simply due to the excessive cost associated with having a colonoscopy.” With over 44 million Americans without any insurance, choosing to have this important examination can be a financial challenge. In addition, there are millions who may have medical insurance, but are unable to utilize its benefit due to high-deductibles that can range upwards of several thousand dollars. The availability of a affordable, yet reliable colonoscopy, therefore, may indeed prove to be the answer for those individuals who face this quandary of having to choose this essential medical test at a very high cost. Appointment for colonoscopy at the Los Angeles Endoscopy Center can be set up either online at http://www.laendo.net or calling directly at 213-387-9000.
