Please bring the following items with you on the day of your procedure: 

  • State issued identification card

  • Updated list of medications

Before Your Procedure

Please arrive at the time given to you by your procedure scheduler. When you arrive, you will meet with the front desk team. You will need to provide them with your state issued identification card and an up-to-date insurance card. The front desk team will also collect a co-pay if applicable. They will also provide you with a wristband as ID. 

The pre-op team will help get you prepared for the procedure. They will provide you a gown to change into. Additionally, they will verify your medical history and take your vitals, which includes temperature, heart rate, repertory rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. Once that is complete, they will start and IV line. 

Next, the anesthesiologist will review your medical history and discuss anesthesia prior to signing a consent. Once this is complete, you will be escorted to a procedure room where you will see your physician and the team who will be performing your procedure. 

After Your Procedure

After your procedure has finished, you will be closely monitored as you recover. The physician that performed your procedure will meet with you and/or your family to discuss preliminary findings and a plan after discharge. The front desk team will help you schedule any follow up appointments if needed. 

You will need someone to drive with you to and from the procedure. It is our facilities policy that your driver remains onsite during your procedure. Your driver can be a family member, friend, or neighbor. You may take a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or other driving services if you are accompanied by a responsible adult the entire time.
