The Day of Your Procedure

What to Expect When you Arrive

When you arrive for your gastroenterology procedure, a member of our staff will show you to the appropriate waiting area. Please arrive one hour before your procedure is scheduled so that you can fill out any necessary paperwork.

Some things to keep in mind as you prepare for your arrival:

  • We are not responsible for damaged or lost property. Please leave valuables at home.
  • Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • If you wear glasses or contacts, bring a case to for their safekeeping. We provide containers for removable dentures and bridgework.
  • You may wear hearing aids during the procedure.
  • Arrive at the hospital with your ID, insurance cards, and registration forms.
  • If you use an inhaler, bring it with you.
  • Diabetic patients must bring their own insulin and oral diabetic agents
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing that provides your body with breathing room.

In-Hospital Preparations

You will be provided with a patient gown, robe, slippers, and bag to store your clothing. A nurse will check your temperature, blood pressure, pulse and ask you to empty your bladder. We will review your medical history once more before having you sign a consent form for the procedure and receiving anesthesia, if applicable.

If you are receiving anesthesia, an anesthesiologist will speak with you before you are sedated to confirm you made the proper preparations. It is important to provide honest answers to our questions, even if you think you may have done something you shouldn’t have. A procedure can always be rescheduled.
