Prior to Your Procedure
Once your procedure has been scheduled, you will receive a phone call from a member of our staff to obtain a basic health history and review your instructions. If you choose, you can contact us at 810-216-4301, between 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. to complete this process. Whichever way you choose, it is very important that you speak directly with someone from the Center prior to the day of your procedure. If you are unable to keep your appointment, or you are delayed, please contact the Center immediately by calling 810-216-4301. Please follow these important safety guidelines. Failure to do so may cause your procedure to be cancelled and/or delayed.
- Make arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you to the Center. This person MUST stay in the building and be available during your entire visit.
- Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your procedure unless your doctor instructs otherwise. This includes foods, liquids, water, candy, gum and breath mints.
- Do not smoke or use tobacco products after midnight the night before your procedure. Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours prior to and after your procedure.
- If you take a blood thinner (such as Coumadin, aspirin, etc.), please notify your doctor when scheduling your procedure.
