- If you are a self-paying patient and are paying for your procedure with cash, check or credit card, the full amount will be due on the day of your procedure.
- Leave valuables and jewelry at home.
- Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes.
- Plan arrive at the center one and a half to two hours prior to the procedure. You should expect a stay of two to three hours total, depending on your procedure.
- If you’re younger than 18, you must have a parent or guardian accompany you to sign your paperwork. For children younger than 18, a parent/guardian must bring the child's medical history and physical that was completed by a pediatrician.

- If you experience any changes in your health prior to your surgery, please call and notify us immediately.
- You may want to bring a sweater or something to keep you warm in the waiting area as it is very chilly.
For Pediatric Patients

- Please bring your child’s favorite toy, blanket, pacifier, bottle and diapers, if applicable. Please remove any jewelry prior to arriving at the center.
- We are unable to accommodate more than two adults per patient. If at all possible, make arrangements for siblings to stay at home.
