Everything went well for the surgery. What I thought was pretty poor service was that the Surgery was 5/9. On June 6th I received a letter from their "administrator" that threatened sending the account to Collections. So 27 days after the surgery they are starting to play hard ball on a invoice? We had received the bill only a few days prior and most Dr's allow 30 days to pay a bill. If this was a cash in advance I would have paid it. I'm not a fan of heavy tactics when I am a great payer and only received a bill a few days prior to the letter. This was very unprofessional and just for this reason I would never go back. There was plenty of other options locally.

I was very impressed with this center with my two visits for cataract surgeries in every level of professionalism. Thank you Dr. Platt, Ami, and the entire staff of nurses.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the center. Some may allow brief visits by family members. Patients should ask about visiting rules before inviting people to stop by.
No. Patients should arrange for someone to drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours following the procedure.
This depends on the procedure. Most centers ask that patients arrive one to two  hours before the procedure begins. Following the procedure, the patient will stay at the center until fully recovered from being sedated. This may take between one and three  hours. After that, if the patient isn't experiencing abnormal pain, he or she may leave.
Different states have different rules regarding requirements for surgery centers. However, ASCs are required to be certified as a Medicare and/or Medicaid Ambulatory Surgery Center supplier before they enter into an agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The most common types of procedures conducted at surgery centers are:
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedics
  • Pain management
Some of the most common procedures include:
  • Cataract surgery
  • Colonoscopy
  • Pain injections
