That the doctors and staff have always treated me and addressed my concerns well. However, I do feel that they need to do something about their Dental clinic. My husband has been down there early in the am these past two days to see the dentist and both times he wasn't able to. The first time he was turned away because they needed proof he lived here in Des Moines. He has been a patient at Broadlawns for the past 6 months and that was verified. They could have easily checked their computers , but they didn't. My husband was down there two hours just for them to not only turn him down for treatment, but the lady at the desk was absolutely rude. I got the paperwork that they wanted to see and he went back up early this morning. Again, he couldn't see the dentist because she then said that he had to pay a co-payment each time he came in which we didn't have. So again, he couldn't be seen. And it isn't just my husband, there are others complaining. They don't schedule appointments; its on a first come, first seen basis. This is just not right that these people have to be up so early (up to an hour before the doors open) to be seen by the doctor. And if they have a large line there, there are many that are turned away and have made a wasted trip. They really need to change this rule of theirs. They need to schedule appointments instead of this walk-in because many of these people cannot afford to make these trips all the time. They also need to have more dentists than just the one. And last of all, they really need to make sure that their staff is a bit more courtious to their patients.

EVERYTHING was excellent EXCEPT for one thing. I suffer from chronic pain. I was in the hospital for 7 weeks on bedrest after a wound surgery. they gave me 4 8mg dilaudid every 3 hrs which made me feel fine. Because of the big dose in the hospital, when I got out, there was NO WAY a pain specialist would prescribe me with anything near that. I got out in may. BEEN IN TERRIBLE PAIN EVER SINCE. DON'T THEY THINK/CARE ABOUT PEOPLES PAIN AFTER THEIR RELEASE? APPARENTLY NOT!!!-travis tigges 515-724-3268

I have 3 grandkids that have been taking lessons there for over a year. They love it & look forward to their classes. Their parents and I love watching them grow & get confidence. Theyve been in business for over 3 decades & all of their instructors have been black belts & teaching for years. Great place, great experience for the kids as well as a great family activity.

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.

  • Pain management
Some of the most common procedures include:
