Wasn't the worse emergency room visit I have had.. 4 stars because it took about 2.5 hours to received any relief from the pain, and 6.5 hours to admit me.I went in about Midnight with such pain in my right abdomen. I had to wait outside while my husband filled out papers because I could not stop throwing up. I was there for about an hour and a half before anyone could see me, and the whole time I laid in the floor next to a trash can because I could not sit on the chair or stop throwing up. Once they called me in, the Nurse was methodical, kind of like just going through the motions of something he does endlessly over and over everyday. After a quick EKG. They finally gave me a pain shot and ran the test to confirm the diagnosis, and from then on my 3 day stay was as pleasant as can be when being so sick for the fist two days. They tried to keep me from being in such pain, keeping the pain meds and anti-nausea meds coming to relieve the pain as much as they could. Finally the Dr. found a good combination of meds that killed the PAIN. An hour later it was surgery time, and from that time on, I have felt better that I have in ages. Doctor's were great, most of the nurses were awesome (Nurse Laura), except one who had a slight attitude. I really have no complaints. I think I was treated well, and I am thankful for Menifee Valley Medical Center.

Finally convinced my husband to go to the emergency room to get his pain taken care of after THREE days! He goes to the hospital they do nothing for the pain and send him home with an rx... called to speak to the charge nurse and he was a piece of work! "Er is always busy.. today we had.. ( gives examples of patients seen) we gave him an rx what did you want me to do give narcotic injections?" To which i repled no I didn't mention narcotics. i was then informed that if they were to give him motrin he could buy that over the counter... Guess what they prescribed him to take home... MOTRIN. ���� SO in the words of the ER charge nurse only go here if you want to waste your time for 3 hours to get no help and recieve meds that you could buy OTC!

Went in for right face, neck and chest pain. It's true you go in and out real quick but no help at all. They said I had Muscle strain and ignored all my other symptoms that I told them I had been having. A muscle strain was not at ask what I had. Staff is friendly but no help no test no nothing to help!

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
