Springfield Ambulatory Surgery Center is an outpatient, freestanding gastrointestinal endoscopy facility that sees patients for colorectal cancer screening and treatment of digestive diseases. Founded in 1997, our mission has always been to provide the highest quality care in a convenient, safe and comfortable setting. If it’s time for your colon cancer screening or you are suffering from other GI problems, we urge you to contact one of our physicians.
Springfield Ambulatory Surgery Center is committed to ensuring that your experience with us is relaxed and worry-free, from consultation through recovery. To assist us, we ask that you read and comply with all guidelines.
At Springfield Ambulatory Surgery Center, your time is as valuable to us as it is to you. Upon scheduling your surgery, a member of our staff will provide you with the required forms to fill out. We encourage you to take time to complete these before arriving on day of surgery, so that we may care for you promptly. If you happen to misplace any of the provided forms, duplicates are available for download.
In order for us to perform your procedure, patients will need to provide a valid referral from their insurance company prior to the procedure date along with all current insurance information. At the time of your visit, patients need to provide the front desk with the correct insurance information, including your insurance card to be copied. Upon check-in on the day of procedure, patients will be responsible for full payment of any co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles required by their insurance company.
