General Information on Cystoscopy

Referral Required?
Required
How to Get Referral

Your primary healthcare provider will refer you to a urologist. 

The cystoscopy clinic does not accept referrals directly from physician’s offices. Referrals must be sent directly to an urologist’s office, who will then schedule a date for your procedure at the clinic.
 

Preparing for Your 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 urologist’s office.
 

Contact Us

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

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

For all other inquires, contact the cystoscopy unit.
