Check-in: Arrive at least 45 minutes before your scheduled procedure time unless directed otherwise. Dress comfortable and wear clothing that will allow you to change into a gown easily.
Some of our patients have described the center as being cold. We encourage everyone to bring or wear socks.
Bring your insurance card and drivers license or photo I.D. with you. If you have not received our registration packet from your physician’s office, download the necessary forms from the registration area, fill them out and bring them with you.
LEAVE ALL OTHER VALUABLES, INCLUDING JEWELRY, WALLET AND ADDITIONAL CASH AT HOME.
We are not responsible for damaged or lost property. Dental appliances can be left in place. These items will be removed and protected in a storage container prior to your procedure.
Ensure that your medication reconciliation sheet is filled out and bring with you. The list should include the medication’s name, dosage, frequency and the last dose taken. Multivitamins, herbal products and other over-the-counter medications should be included on that list.
Be prepared to sign a form giving your consent for the procedure. If the patient is under 18, a parent or legal guardian must accompany the patient and sign the consent form. If the patient is not able to sign legal documents, then someone with a Durable Power of Attorney should be present.
The endoscopy center does not honor Advanced Directives. For additional information regarding a Power of Attorney or Advanced Directives, contact the endoscopy center prior to your procedure.
Most procedures require sedation. Because we care about your safety, we cannot allow you to drive home.
