Cancellation Policy:

If you are unable to keep your appointment, you must notify the Specialists Office in advance. Failure to inform the Office could result in a cancellation fee.

Conscious Sedation:

You will most likely receive conscious sedation, therefore you will need an adult friend or family member to sign responsibility for you at the time of discharge. You will not be able to drive yourself. The entire appointment (registration, procedure and post observation) will take approximately 2-3 hours. Plan to rest at home for the remainder of the day, with an adult present, as you will be drowsy from the medication. You are restricted from driving, or operating hazardous machinery, or drinking alcohol for the rest of the day, as you are receiving medications that can make you sleepy.
