More Episodes

On our first episode of the Triad Cancer Connection Podcast, I’m talking with Scott Cornella, MD of Gastroenterology Associates of the Piedmont about colon cancer screening recommendations.

Originally from western North Carolina, Dr. Cornella attended the University of North Carolina for his undergraduate education, where he graduated with honors with a degree in Biology. He stayed in Chapel Hill to obtain his medical degree at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.

Dr. Cornella completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Virginia, where he had the distinction of serving as Chief Resident. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Virginia.

He is board-certified in Internal Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Affiliations include the American College of Gastroenterology and the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.

What we discuss:

  • What inspired Dr. Cornella to study gastroenterology
  • Why colonoscopies are recommended for colon cancer prevention
  • How dangerous polyps are and how they affect future screenings
  • The importance of bowel prep
  • Pros and cons of alternative screening options
  • Recommendations for minorities and other high-risk patients
  • Who can perform a colonoscopy
  • What to ask your colonoscopy doctor
  • Colonoscopy prep tips

I also speak with Senior Civic Engagement Specialist at United Health Centers Felica Bennett-Giles about her colonoscopy experience and why she’s become an advocate for early screenings for African Americans.
