Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It will also help alleviate any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling prior to your first appointment. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this website. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
What to Expect
Before You Arrive:
Make arrangements for transportation. You will not be allowed to drive yourself home nor leave the center unattended. You CANNOT use a taxi, Uber, or Lift unless accompanied by a responsible adult (family member/ friend). THIS IS FOR YOUR SAFETY. Also, you must arrange for a responsible adult to be with you at home after your procedure for the first twenty-four hours post procedure.
Know your financial responsibility before arriving for your procedure. You will be contacted by a staff member that works in our business office prior to the day of your procedure; they will verify your financial responsibility i.e. deductibles and co-insurance. Upon arrival at our center, your financial portion of the procedure must be paid. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, debit card, and credit card. Failure to not pay your portion of the charges could result in cancellation.
If you are not contacted by our office the day before your procedure, please call to confirm at 973-890-4780.

DO NOT DRINK OR EAT ANYTHING FOR AT LEAST 8 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR PROCEDURE, UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED BY YOUR PHYSICIAN.

- Due to the Identity Theft Laws, all patients are required to bring in a valid picture ID and current insurance card.
- If you have an Advance Directive, please bring it in with you.
- If the person driving you home is not going to wait at our facility, you must provide us with their name and number; we will call them when you are in the recovery room.
