Colonoscopy Procedures

Endoscopy or Colonoscopy procedures, if performed at the hospital can cost 3x more than if performed at a doctor’s office. At Gastroenterology Specialists of Orlando, Inc., there is no difference in the colonoscopy procedure in this surgery center or in the hospital setting. We use the same equipment, sedation, and anesthesia. The only difference is the cost savings to our patients in having an outpatient colonoscopy. Dr. Baker is the owner of this surgical center which means there will be a considerable discount in cost… when thinking of your Endoscopy and Colon Screening consider the extra savings!


If uncertain about the insurance you have, we will verify prior to the appointment.
