General Information

Due to sedation you will be unable to drive yourself home. Plan on having someone drive you home and if possible stay with you the remainder of the day. The Frederick Endoscopy Center cannot perform your procedure unless transportation arrangements have been made. Taking a cab is not acceptable unless a responsible adult accompanies you.

Your physician will be available to speak to you and your family member immediately following your procedure. Due to the sedation, you may not remember the discussion. It is important that someone be with you to remember for you. The physician may not be available to speak to someone at another time. Also, schedules change and your procedure may be performed earlier than anticipated and your ride home will be needed sooner. It is strongly recommended that your responsible person remain present at the Center.

Bring your insurance cards, a photo ID  and a valid credit card with you the day of your procedure. If co-pay is required, please bring payment with you. Cash, check, MasterCard and Visa are accepted. You will receive separate billings from the facility, physician, anesthesiologist and laboratory. Also, do bring your eyeglasses as you will need to read and sign a few forms. Leave all other valuables and jewelry at home. We cannot be responsible for them.
