Bloomfield Hills, MI (Law Firm Newswire) June 20, 2013 – Too many seniors are being given colonoscopies too often, a new study states. A recent study in the American Medical Association’s JAMA Internal Medicine stated that many seniors report “a strong moral obligation” when it comes to undergoing medical testing, even in their advanced years.
