•    97 percent felt they were able to schedule their procedure at a convenient time
•    98 percent reported being comfortable after discharge
•    99 percent reported little or no discomfort during the procedure
•    99 percent said they would recommend the procedures to others
•    100 percent indicated that they received written discharge instructions
•    100 percent reported an acceptable understanding of the procedure

The key clinical findings were gathered between July and December 2012 from 100 organizations performing a combined annual total of 353,300 colonoscopies.
