Postoperative Instructions

After any medical procedure you will be provided specific and customized post-operative instructions by Doctor John and his team. You are encouraged to ask questions. We require any patient undergoing a procedure requiring anything more than just local anesthesia to have a family member or friend accompany them on the day of the procedure to drive them home. Our patients can also expect a phone call from Doctor John in the evening after the surgical procedure to answer any questions, and to follow-up on the progress of recovery. Our patients may call the office for questions and concerns following a surgical procedure. If it is afterhours our answering service will contact Doctor John. In any serious emergency call 911 or proceed to an emergency room.
