Finally!! This Md's are preaching the truth. I work at the hospital and there are so many patients and families that have no idea about Cologuard. This test will prevent so many new Cases of Colon Cancer. These MD's are so right, so many people that I talk to, do not want to do the prep. This is great!!!!

Absolutly!! They even said that 80+ years olds should have the Cologuard as well. Colonoscopies are to dangerous, possible perf the colon. It just is a great way to get people diagnosed early.
While waiting at my doctors office this am, I saw the Aetna news and then asked my nurse practitioner if she knew about Cologuard and she lite up. She said it has been great and just herself ordered 30 Cologuards already. This will take off more and more and like I said before, men don't want to get a Colonscopy, but they will do the Cologuard. That is exactly what my NP said today. I bought so more today for sure. LONG all the way.

I added as well. I see to many people everyday with colorectal cancer and it is no nice. No one wants a colostomy on their abdomen. Get the test done early and you won't have too. Prevention is everything in health care now. We just need the insurance giants to jump on and I can't believe they haven't. The cost of a colon resections and at least a five day stay in the hospital in over 100,000. I think $599 vs $100,000 it a better cost to the insurance company.
This will be the biggest report for EXAS. All the have to show is that more MD's are ordering the test. Just think when you get a report on 60 minutes on how this test caught someones cancer early. The stock will be at 100 in a heart beat, if someone doesn't but them out. So, I can't wait for the earnings report.. I live a small town in NC and I have been hearing of people getting the test done. Just think of large cities..
I could not agree more with you. The cancer can be caught so much sooner and the test is so easy to do. It has such an opportunity to save so many lives...
They said they had 4000 MD's order 1 test each??? That seems odd to me, that number has to sky rocket. Everything in medicine now, is preventive and how much is the cost. Here you go!! What an east test to do, not even a stick from a needle that everyone hates as well.
To many men just don't want to have a colonoscopy. They don't want to do the bowel prep and then go for the procedure. This test will help so men and women detect colon cancer early, so they don't have to come to me for Colon resection. $500 test to detect early, 4-5 grand for a colonoscopy. Medicare/Medicaid will pay for it. This is will help so many people!!!
