Dr Bernard Chin discusses quality colonoscopy - 'If you see brown, we see brown'

Gastroenterologist Dr Bernard Chin chats to Stephanie about what makes for a good bowel prep and quality colonoscopy.

Dr Chin demystifies the procedure, shares tips to help patients prepare, and provides insights about what to expect before, during and after a colonoscopy.

Based in Cairns, Bernard is passionate about providing patient centric care, training future gastroenterologists, and ensuring those living in regional Australia have access to timely quality health care.

If you are aged 18-and-over and have had a colonoscopy, we invite you to provide feedback about your experience.

My Colonoscopy Experience is a simple online questionnaire that can be completed anonymously, which allows you to report what the colonoscopy experience was like for you, as a patient.

It only takes a small amount of time to complete, but it can have a big impact.

Help us ensure the patient voice is heard, so that future colonoscopy care reflects what patients want and need.
