What if I have an emergency after hours?
Questions related to appointments, lab results, or other results please call during regular office hours. If you believe you have matters that cannot wait until normal business hours, an on-call physician is available by dialing our office number.
What can I expect at my first visit?
During your first visit, you can expect to be asked about your medical history, go through a physical examination, and talk to the surgeon about additional tests or surgeries that may be necessary.
What are the possible risks associated with surgery?
Almost all surgery has an associated risk, which is why it is important to discuss the risks and benefits of surgery. The surgeon will provide information about the possible complications and potential side effects that may occur during or after the procedure. The methods of pain management after the procedure will be discussed with the patient.

What is outpatient surgery?
As advances in medical technology, anesthesia and pain control continue, many less invasive surgical procedures are now being performed on an outpatient basis. Common procedures that are now routinely performed on an outpatient basis include hernia repairs and gallbladder removals. Complications from outpatient procedures are relatively uncommon.
