SoCal residents expect their colonoscopies to be unpleasant. But many say they never could have predicted the high costs associated with the procedure.

That's what KPCC's Rebecca Plevin heard when she reached out to several people who shared their colonoscopy costs with our #PriceCheck project.

Plevin joined Take Two Wednesday to tell more about her project Price Check and the high costs (and horrors!) of colonoscopies.

Bonus: Listen to our song about the cost of colonoscopies, written and performed by the one and only Levi Petree (KPCC employee by day, rock 'n' roller by night).

It's called "#JustAsk", based on "Ask" by The Smiths. We hope you'll remember this next time you go to the doctor. For tips on how to have that awkward conversation about the price of your procedure, click here.
