What to Bring to
Your Appointment

We've put together quick lists of documents to bring to your AG appointments. This information usually depends on the type of appointment and whether you've been to AG before.

Note that procedures involving anesthesia will require you to bring a designated driver over the age of 18. For more information on who to bring, see the Procedures Involving Sedation section, below.

Initial Consultation

If it's your first time at AG and you're visiting for a screening or consultation, please bring:

Treatments and Follow-Up Visits

If you're coming in for treatment or a follow-up visit, please bring:

  • A government-issued photo ID
  • Proof of address, if different from your photo ID address.
  • Your medical insurance card or other applicable information
  • Patient Information Form
  • Other forms, based on your procedure. Please consult your physician's office for the exact forms.

Easy Access Forms

AG lets you fill out many of our forms online, instead of bringing them in. Learn more

Proof of Address

What does AG accept as proof of address? A recent utility bill, bank statement or other official document that lists your current address.

Procedures Involving Sedation

The following procedures involve anesthesia or sedation and will require you to bring a responsible adult driver over the age of 18. If you do not have a responsible adult with you, your procedure will be canceled.

  • Colonoscopy
  • Upper endoscopy with dilation
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Upper endoscopy

Who should you bring?

AG recommends that a responsible adult accompany you to the Endoscopy center to drive you home. It's important to bring someone who can take detailed doctor instructions. Patients that receive anesthesia or other sedatives often have trouble remembering conversations after surgery. We will only disclose personal medical information to the responsible adult accompanying you with your permission.

Remember: If a responsible adult is not available to drive you home, your procedure will be canceled.

What should you wear?

If you wear glasses, dentures or hearing aids, please bring those with you. We will provide safekeeping for those items while you are at the Center. We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and minimal make-up.

What should you leave at home?

AG recommends that you leave jewelry or other valuables at home — or in another safe location — while you're at the endoscopy center. We are not responsible for loss or damage of items that may occur while you're undergoing procedures.
