General Information on Colposcopy

How to Get Referral

Your primary healthcare provider will refer you to a gynecologist.

The colposcopy clinic does not accept direct referrals from physician’s offices. Referrals must be sent directly

to a gynecologist’s office, who will then schedule a date for your procedure at the clinic.

Preparing for Your Visit

We ask that you please eat breakfast before your clinic visit.

If you require extra assistance to ambulate, change clothes and/or for toileting, please ensure that a caregiver accompanies you to your visit.

If you are driving, please allow for extra time as parking space is limited.

If a translator is needed, bringing a family member or a friend to translate is encouraged. Island Health will provide translation services over the phone if required.

All appointment changes and/or cancellations are arranged through the referring physician’s office.

Contact Us

If you need to cancel, please contact your referring physician’s office at least 1 week before your scheduled procedure at the clinic.

Please contact the referring physician’s office or your gynecologist for any questions or concerns regarding the procedure.

For all other inquires, contact the colposcopy unit.
