No special preparation is needed before prostate ultrasound. The man is covered with a sheet during the intervention. He usually is lying on his left side, with his knees folded up to his thorax. We put a protective cover and lubricant on the ultrasound probe before inserting it into the rectum. The man may feel some pressure or have a feeling of fullness in the rectum when the transducer is in place. The transducer emits high frequency sound waves to the prostate. A computer analyses the echoes generated by the sound waves and produces images of the prostate on the screen. The image reveals the size of the prostate and any abnormalities.
Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you require his professional services, you will have to pay directly the Cliniques Marois for the services rendered.
To ensure the smooth running of the clinics aa well as a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and staff members, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for cancelling an appointment, 5 working days for cancelling a minor surgery in the office and 21 working days for major surgery at the CMC. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
Change of appointment:
We understand that events occur and schedules change, so we ask patients to give us at least a 24-hour notice for any changes of appointment. We will be happy to reschedule another one for you. Failure to provide such notice within this timeframe will result in a $ 100 fee.
Thank you for your understanding.
