What Patients (and Doctors and Nurses) are Saying about HydroPREP

“Thank you for the HydroPrep procedure done prior to my colonoscopy. It is usually an extremely high anxiety procedure for me due to the prep of drinking a gallon of the Go-Lytely. It causes me to throw up, cry and stress out to a degree that no one should have to do. The HydroPrep was gentle, easy and comfortable. I do not have insurance. I was told by Dr. Norman’s office that the whole procedure could be upwards of $3,000.00 or more, but I could go to Carson City and pay half as much.

When I found out that this procedure of HydroPrep is only performed at Barton Hospital in South Lake Tahoe, I chose the procedure over the savings. I am so glad I did! I hope more hospitals will open the opportunity of HydroPrep to their patients.”  Laurie Spaulding

“Devastated when my colonoscopy prep failed and I’d have to return, they immediately administered colon , completed the exam, and removed seven polyps that same day.” Michael McGuire

“The ‘day before’ prep was so much easier and didn’t make me sick. HydroPrep was a comfortable, private experience and not embarrassing.” C.S., RN 

“I am impressed with the ease and quality the HydroPREP provides my patients. They are uniformly more pleased, more hydrated, and more relaxed compared to patients who choose other preps.” Dan Norman, MD FACP FACG

“All Hydro patients that come through the GI lab love it. It’s an overall, healthier experience.” Tracy Rosa, RN

“I get a colonoscopy yearly and found the large volume prep both physically and mentally stressful. Not anymore with the HydroPREP.” Mary S. Waskiewicz

“The exercising action of the lavage warmed up my colon preparing me to comfortably undergo the colonoscopy without the use of supplemental sedation. This allowed me to resume normal activity immediately and not waste the day in a sedation fog.” Greg Bergner, MD 

“The HydroPREP was easy to do and the overall experience was positive. I would choose it again.”  Steven Brooks, MD

“With the hydration, a good night’s sleep, and overall good experience of the HydroPREP, I was able to do the colonoscopy without sedation.”  Randy Watson, MD
