We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

It is recommended that patients begin regular colorectal cancer screenings at age 45. Those at increased or high risk of colorectal cancer might need to start colorectal cancer screening before age 45 and/or be screened more often. Risk factors include,
but are not limited to:
Family history of colorectal cancer
Family history of polyps
Personal history of inflammatory bowel disease
There are several options for colon cancer screening, and our specialists will make a recommendation based on several factors including, but not limited to, medical history, preparation requirements, convenience, and cost.
