It was my first colonoscopy. It was a screening. The Dr didn't make an attempt to meet me until after I was drugged up. My husband and I explained we did not want any other doctors/ interns touching me and that was not respected. Some foreigner Man doctor took me back and started the procedure. That was against my wishes This was a screening! the hospital charged my insurance as a screening! she charged me as a diagnostic colonoscopy. I've never had any problems. Insurance issues disappointed
