Our ambulatory center provides state-of-the-art care in a comfortable and convenient setting. Our staff is dedicated to assuring you the highest level of personal care and patient satisfaction.
Prior to your procedure, your physician may require preoperative lab tests. Your physician's office can advise you of the nearest laboratory.
Each patient is given written post-operative instructions when they go home. Do not hesitate to call your doctor if you have any questions about your discharge instructions or recovery. Should you experience severe pain, bleeding, fever or nausea after surgery, consult your doctor or an Emergency Room doctor immediately.
Each patient is asked to provide feedback to Endoscopy Center of Silicon Valley in a Patient Satisfaction Survey. Endoscopy Center of Silicon Valley constantly strives to improve our services to our patients. Patient feedback provides us with valuable information that we use both to measure our success and continually improve our performance.
You must make arrangements to have an adult family member or friend drive you home. We must cancel your procedure if you are unable to make these arrangements. It is important that you have someone stay with you for the first night after procedure, just in case you need any assistance.
