Your physician will go over pre-op instructions in detail with you. In general, you will need to refrain from eating or drinking prior to your procedure except for prep medication as directed by your physician. Dress comfortably on the day of your appointment. If you have any questions or concerns about how to prepare for your appointment, please contact your physician.
You must bring a photo ID and current insurance cards to your appointment. You must also bring a form of payment for any copayments, coinsurance, deductibles or other balances due at the time of service. Please leave your valuables at home.
Generally, the procedure will be finished around 45 minutes to one hour from your scheduled procedure time.
After your procedure, you may feel drowsy or tired. Many patients will want to rest after the procedure due to the effects of the medications used in sedation.
No. You must bring a driver with you to your appointment, as you will not be able to drive for 24 hours following the procedure. Your driver should arrive with you and can wait in our comfortable lobby until your procedure is complete. The total procedure time is approximately 45 minutes to one hour, and your driver must be present in order to complete your discharge. If you do not have a driver, you will need to make arrangements with a medical transport service.
Almost all of our patients receive sedation for their procedure. If you receive sedation, you will be instructed to stay home, rest and refrain from driving for the remainder of the day. You may return to your normal activities the following day, unless directed otherwise by your physician.
You may eat and drink following the procedure; however, you should not consume alcohol for 24 hours following your appointment.
You will receive a preliminary report before leaving our center after your procedure. A full pathology report generally takes between 48 and 72 hours. Please contact your physician for more information about obtaining your results.
