Helpful Hints and Suggestions for Patients


Get Your Prescription Filled If your physician has given you a prescription, have it filled before your procedure. Then, after you return home, you will have the medication available when you need it.

Leave Valuables at Home
Remove all jewelry and body piercing studs before leaving home. If your tongue is pierced, remove the stud. There is no safe storage area for these items at the center.

Have a Family Member or Friend Stay With You 
It is a good idea to have someone stay with you for the first 24 hours after you return home. Rest and pamper yourself during this time.
