Excellent facility for outpatient surgery but it shares a problem with other hospitals in that once a patient walks in the door, it becomes an impersonal assembly line. You go from desk to desk, room to room, here to there, very much like a Ford in Detroit, getting its door handles, bumpers, and tail lights screwed on. Except for a patient, its paper work, blood work, monitors, and finally the surgery. Lastly the car or the patient is rolled out the door, the car shiny new, the patient wounded, disoriented, and confused, with little or no concrete information about what to expect. There's the generic sheet of aftercare instructions, couched with maybes, might haves, and possiblys, but not a straight answer from anyone. It's clean and the people are very nice, but people are not cars.

I also had a very good experience at this center. Very caring medical personnel. I was undergoing my procedure in a timely fashion and would highly recommend this facility to anyone having an outpatient surgical procedure.

I wish there were more than two of them! They truly care about my health and my issues not like other doctors. I have been seeing them for years and will continue to!

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
