Preparation for Your Procedure

  • DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER 10:00 P.M. BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE. This is imperative, and failure to do so will result in complications and may result in postponement of your procedure
  • If you are taking medications for diabetes, heart or blood pressure, contact your physician or discuss this with one of our nursing staff to ensure proper instructions on taking or discontinuing the medication
  • If you experience any health changes between your recent visit to your doctor and the day of your procedure, notify your doctor. Please report even minor changes such as an elevated temperature, cough or cold
  • If you suspect that you are pregnant, please notify your doctor
  • For your own safety and protection, you will not be allowed to drive a motor vehicle after your procedure
  • Please make arrangements to have someone bring you and escort you home from the center. This includes pain management procedures. You may also need to have someone with you overnight depending on the procedure you are having done
