New Years Resolutions

By January 11, 2013 Blog No Comments

January, 2013…another year is underway. Many people in the Southern California area made resolutions last year to be more healthy and to take a proactive stand in their own healthcare. Unfortunately, those resolutions have fallen by the wayside. So, instead of resolutions let’s talk facts.

It is estimated that only 20% of all adult Americans are screened properly for colon cancer. Are you surprised by that number? People fear the preparation process so they postpone the appointment; a few months turns into a year and then you have joined the 80% that have gone unscreened.

So, are you 50 or over? You should be screened initially to determine your baseline. Do you have a family history of colon cancer? You need to call our offices at Southern California Medical Gastroenterology Clinic and discuss your personal need. CallĀ (310) 829-6789 or submit theĀ form here.
