Preparation Instructions for Procedures

Before Your Procedure

  • It is important that you set up your MyChart prior to your procedure. Prior to your procedure, verify the time, date, and location of your procedure through MyChart.
  • You will be notified when your appointment is scheduled if a COVID test is required.  If you have been vaccinated, any requirements for a COVID test will be waived.

During your Procedure

  • Masks will be required to enter our facility. If you do not have one, we will provide you with one.
  • You will be screened for COVID symptoms at the entrance.
  • On the day of your procedure, you are required to have a companion for transportation.  Your driver will need to provide their mobile phone number prior to your procedure, to receive updates on your progress.  They will be asked to stay within twenty minutes of the procedure site, so that you can be picked up in a timely manner.
