    In Canada, there is an eight week wait to receive this procedure.

    Has anyone in the U.S. received this procedure to diagnose G.I.S.T.? If so, what was the wait time and cost of procedure?

    Please feel free to message me privately.

    Wait time and cost depends on the physician, location and the physician's patient load. At the hospital I work at, a typical endo ultrasound is about a 1 to 3 week wait.

    26mile, your Provincial gov't has been rolling in more cash than Scrooge McDuck. Call the specialist who is going to do the endoscopy and explain your circumstances.
