Cynthia Rogers Colonoscopy
February 23, 2017 | by The Polyclinic

An unusual symptom prompted Polyclinic patient Cynthia Rogers to see her primary care doctor. She was just 39 at the time, but her doctor suggested a screening colonoscopy. During the exam, a few small polyps were found and removed, including one with cancer. A patient of gastroenterologist Dr. Craig Pepin, Cynthia has had many colonoscopies since then and continues to be healthy and cancer-free. She’s also been educating people and promoting colonoscopy ever since.
