Ambulatory Surgery Center

When will my surgery be scheduled?

Your surgical procedure will be scheduled based on your physician’s instructions, your needs and the Ambulatory Surgery Center’s availability. The surgery center staff will call you one business day prior to your procedure to confirm your arrival time and to answer any questions.

Why do I need 24-hour care following surgery if I have anesthesia?

The effects of anesthesia may last up to 24 hours after surgery. You may be drowsy and may need help caring for yourself.

When can I eat after surgery?

The type of anesthesia administered will determine when you can eat or drink. Further information will be provided during discharge instructions.

Who do I call for a refill?

Patients are responsible for taking the medication in the dose prescribed and for keeping track of the amount remaining. All requests for prescription refills should be made directly to your pharmacy.

If a prescription renewal is necessary, the pharmacist will contact your physician for authorization. Please do not call the office directly for a refill. Please be reminded that this process may take up to two business days.
