Prior to Your Arrival
In preparation for your procedure, one of our nurses will contact you by phone one to three business days prior to your appointment to discuss your medical history, any medications you are currently taking and to provide you with instructions.
There are a few important items for you to bring with you:
- Photo ID
- Insurance Cards
- Form of Payment which can include Credit Card, Cash or Check as you are expected to pay at registration if not previously paid prior to your procedure or surgery.
You will need to present these upon arrival.
- Valuables: Jewelry, money and credit cards are all to be left at home, (unless you are expected to pay your required fees or balances with a credit card, Cash or check on intake).
- Contact Lenses & Glasses: If you wear glasses, bring them. We will remove them prior to your procedure and store them safely for you. Contact lenses may not be worn.
- Clothing: Wear anything loose fitting and comfortable, easy to put on after your procedure.
An Anesthesiologist will be present continually for your care while you are a patient at the Center. Prior to your procedure they will review your medical history and perform a brief physical assessment. You will be asked about underlying medical conditions and the medications you are taking. Most medications should be taken with a few sips of water upon awakening on the day of your procedure. It is important to inform them if you have a history of allergic reaction to specific medications.
Prior to the day of surgery, you will have been instructed on the need to fast preoperatively. If you have any questions regarding the procedure preparation – please do not hesitate to contact your Physician’s office directly.
Please plan to arrive on time, which is 1 hour prior to your actual procedure or surgery time. Your actual procedure and subsequent recovery time on average takes approximately two hours.
