CHARLES RIVER ENDO INFORMATION AND DIRECTIONS

**YOU MUST BRING THE COMPLETED 3 PAGES, YOUR INSURANCE CARD(S), AND YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE OR PHOTO ID

We highly recommend patients leave contact lenses and jewelry at home as most will need to be removed.

Please note that each procedure is unique and individualized. Our goal is to always stay on time but please understand that at times unforeseen situations can affect our schedule. Please know that we take pride in giving each and every patient the time that is necessary to do a complete and thorough exam. In the event that we are running late or due to a schedule change of the physician, please be aware that we may call you to instruct you to come at a different time to accommodate all involved.

 Once you have completed your exam, we will call your ride with the pick-up time. Please plan on being at our facility for approximately 2 hours from the time of arrival until pick-up. Your ride should plan to be readily available during this time as your discharge time could change based upon your procedure. They must be available within 30 minutes of your procedure end time to ensure your safety after the procedure. You will be groggy after the anesthesia therefore it is important that someone be here and available after the procedure to make sure you are ok. Your ride must be over 18. Unfortunately, for your safety, you may not take a cab by yourself.

 If you are not able to understand, read or write English, please bring an interpreter.
