Female Gastroenterologists at Eastern Connecticut Endoscopy Center
Eastern Connecticut Endoscopy Center is proud to have two female gastroenterologists performing endoscopy procedures on “Women Only Screening Day”:
Focusing on Colon Cancer Prevention in Women
The program was started based on the idea that only 60 percent of at-risk women have had a colonoscopy in the United States. That’s compared to 80 percent of women that have annual mammograms and pap smears.
On Women Only Screening Day, the physicians and staff at the center are all women. The hope is that having an all-woman staff helps to ease any anxiety that women may have about this life-saving procedure.
The staff at Eastern Connecticut Endoscopy Center understand that a colon cancer screening is an intimate and personal procedure. The aim to set patients at ease and allow them to focus on their health and cancer prevention.
