If you are having a procedure that requires sedation, you must make arrangements to have a responsible adult escort you home from the Center. If you are unable to have an escort meet you at the center, there are several private escort services that are available at an additional cost to take you home.

Our center does NOT have a relationship with these entities. Please note that these services provide the escort only and that you will need to make separate arrangements for transportation. You will need to contact the escort service at least 48 hours in advance of your procedure. Please be advised that you will not be able to undergo your procedure if you have not made arrangements to have an escort take you home from the Center.
