Make Sure You Are Fasting

Do not eat or drink anything after midnight on the night before your surgery. It is important to have a completely empty stomach before anesthesia for safety reasons, as it can reduce the body’s ability to prevent food or stomach acids from entering the lungs.

Wear Comfortable Clothing

Dress in comfortable clothes that button down the front and avoid garments such as turtlenecks or pullovers that may contact your face. Leave your valuables such as jewelry and watches at home.

Arrive Clean and Makeup-Free

Shower and wash your hair on the morning of surgery or the night before. Wash your face thoroughly with mild soap and warm water. Do not wear any makeup or contact lenses. If you wear dentures, leave them in.

What to Expect Upon Admission?

On the morning of your surgery, you will be admitted to the surgery center, where you will remove your street clothes and don a hospital gown. An IV will be placed in your arm, through which you will receive your perioperative medication such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and anti-anxiety medication.

In the Operating Room

A nurse will escort you to the operating room and remain with you throughout the entire procedure. The nurse can answer any questions you may have about the surgery or what happens afterwards.

After Surgery

It is important to have a responsible family member or friend available to drive you home after surgery, as you may still be somewhat affected by the anesthesia. It is dangerous to drive home by yourself and therefore it is not permitted. Please contact us if you need assistance in arranging postoperative transportation.

PRACTICE UPDATE AS OF JUNE 2020 View Update Virtual Consultation

PRACTICE UPDATE REGARDING RE-OPENING

We are excited to announce we are now treating patients for all procedures and surgeries. After a month of optimizing our Covid-19 protocols, we are confident in our ability to offer a safe clinic and operating room setting for our patients and staff. We have instituted disinfection methods, enhanced air purification, and the use of personal protective equipment. We will continue to offer virtual postoperative checks and new patient consultations through our telehealth platform. A future in-person consultation will not require an additional consultation fee.

As part of our commitment to the highest safety standards, the following modifications to the patient experience for the foreseeable future. We greatly appreciate your compliance and understanding.

  1. Online check-in must be completed through our online portal 48-hours prior to the appointment.
  2. We are instituting a curbside waiting room. Please text us at 503-575-1910 upon arrival and wait in your parked car until you are notified via text message that we are ready to begin your appointment. Complimentary patient parking is located below our building.
  3. Patients are required to bring and wear masks for the duration of their appointment. If you do not have one, one will be provided.
  4. Guests, children, or visitors other than the patient will not be permitted. In the case of patients who are minors, one accompanying parent or guardian is permissible.
  5. We will obtain credit card information over the phone prior to the appointment. Payment will be processed after the treatment is completed. No payment will be handled onsite.
  6. Patients will enter our main entrance and exit out of our back exit. This one-way patient flow will allow us to comprehensively disinfect our clinic to be ready for the next patient.
  7. Coronavirus testing will be instituted for all surgical patients.

We appreciate your continued patience and flexibility. See you soon.
