For the comfort of all our patients, we ask that you limit the number of people accompanying you to Physicians Surgery Center. It is best to leave small children at home with a guardian. A companion may remain with you up to the time of your surgery, then will move to the waiting room during your procedure.
Our team will keep your companions informed about your progress and updated if the surgery takes longer than expected. Your surgeon will give them a report after the surgery. Those who leave the center can be notified by cell phone when the surgeon is ready to report. For patients that are minors, we ask their guardians to not leave the center.
When you and your nurse determine you’re ready for visitors, your companion can join you in recovery to receive verbal and written discharge instructions.
