Brisbane Scopes has an Open Access Clinic facility. Open Access means that either you or your GP can request an appointment for a gastroscopy, colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy without the need for a prior consultation with a specialist. Following a consultation and examination by your GP, he or she will have made the decision that the appropriate investigation is the next step and this can therefore be booked directly.
As a matter of routine, Dr Renaut will carry out a brief consultation with you on the day prior to the procedure, to record your symptoms and also to confirm that the investigation is indeed appropriate. This consultation will also allow Dr Renaut to give you some advice with regard to management dependent upon what is found on the day.
