How to reach our endoscopy center


Do not eat or drink the night before your procedure!

Follow in detail the preparation instructions provided to you by your gastroenterologist, which have been specifically designed to address your health issues and medications.

Plan to arrive at the center 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete any pre-procedure paperwork and for staff to begin the pre-op necessary for your procedure.

If you have not notified your physician of the medications or medical conditions listed above, please call your gastroenterologist at 301-663-9440.

Day of your visit

Please arrive early for your appointment.

On the day of your procedure, please bring your insurance card(s), a photo identification, your completed Court Endoscopy Center forms, and if required by your insurance, a referral for services for your procedure appointment. Bringing your completed forms will assist us in staying on time for your procedure. If you need to complete your forms when you arrive, your procedure may be delayed or canceled.

The forms will be provided to you at the time of scheduling. If you prefer, you can access the Court Endoscopy Center forms through the Patient Resources tab, print, complete and bring with you to your procedure.

After your procedure

You will need to bring someone to your appointment.

To ensure you are comfortable during your procedure, CEC uses propofol, a safe and proven anesthesia. Because sedation is usually given for procedures, you MUST bring a responsible driver (at least 18 years old) with you, to take you home after the procedure. Your driver must remain at the center during the procedure.
