Should I take endoscopy?
Nov 11, 2007

My Doc. recommended endoscopy.. I read that there are chances for Hep B/Hep C/HIV risks because of endoscopy..Is that true??

Response from Dr. McGovern

Extraordinarily rare and only seen in the form of a rare case report. These cases are the exception. Endoscopy is usually safe and I have undergone those procedures myself.

A question
