Endoscopy

An endoscopic examination is a way of exploring and visualizing the interior of conduits or cavities inaccessible to the naked eye. The endoscope is made up of an optical tube equipped with a lighting system and a video camera that is able to retransmit the image to a screen.

Make an endoscopy appointment

Following the appointment with your family doctor or with a specialist (pulmonologist, gastroenterologist, surgeon, urologist or gynecologist), the doctor will request an examination and a secretary will contact you to make an appointment based on the priority status of the request.

Do not book an appointment if you plan to travel within two weeks after the date offered for the examination. 

Unable to make it to your appointment?

If you are unable to make it to your appointment, it is important to inform us at least 48 hours in advance by contacting us by phone (see contact information at the bottom of this page). That way it will be easier for us to fill all our appointment timeslots.

This postponement will be counted as a refusal on your part and, after 3 refusals or postponements, your request for an endoscopic examination will be completely cancelled and you will need to see your doctor again to evaluate the necessity for the examination (directive from the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS), March 2021).
