Sedation Information: If you choose to have minimal sedation for your procedure, you must have an adult to accompany you when you leave. You are not able to drive after taking the sedation medication, so you will need a driver. If you are taking a bus or taxi from your appointment, you will still need an adult to accompany you. The adult who accompanies you home does not need to be present for the visit.

  • Payment (if applicable)

Payment Information:
