Tips for Your First Visit
- Arrive 15 minutes early to fill out a medical questionnaire
- Get your necessary X-rays
- Bring a list of your current medications
- Let us know of any medication allergies
- Inform us if you suffer from any congenital heart disease, heart murmur, rheumatic fever or if you have an implanted artificial valve or joint as that may require you to take some antibiotics before your appointment
- Contact our office for specific information regarding your procedure
Please confirm your appointment 48 hours in advance of your appointment time. If you fail to do so, it will be considered as cancelled and your appointment time will be allotted to another patient.
We understand that life happens and things come up. Our team is always happy to help you reschedule your appointment.
Our experienced medical team is always looking forward to provide you with a pleasing experience at our ambulatory surgery center. However, a little help from your side is required. On the day of your surgery:
- Don't arrive late as it may result in cancellation or postponement of your surgery
- Do not eat or drink anything 6 hours prior to your surgery, unless directed otherwise
- Let us know if you have a cold, sore throat, productive cough, fever or any other illness prior to the surgery.
- Don't smoke, drink alcohol or take recreational drugs 24 hours before surgery.
- Don't take medications that calm your nerves, such as Valium or Xanax, before surgery without our approval.
- Inform us if you're taking any weight control or athletic supplements because some of these over-the-counter products interfere with or adversely affect anesthesia
- Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes with sleeves that easily roll up above the elbow.
- Refrain from wearing flip-flops or high-heel shoes
- Remove any contact lenses, fingernail polish, and heavy eye makeup
- Have someone to wait with you at our clinic and drive you home after the surgery.
- Don't operate any motor vehicle for the next 24 hours post surgery
