Why Choose an ASC?
When patients choose to use an outpatient endoscopy center, also called an ambulatory endoscopy center (AEC), most find that the process is much more convenient, as well as more personal. Our center offers a relaxed environment with medical staff focused on offering individualized patient care. Our specialized staff helps each patient's visit go as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Other benefits of an AEC include:
Ease of use:
Since our center focuses on a limited number of procedures, most patients find that we are much easier to navigate than a typical hospital environment.
Our center offers patient registration, waiting rooms, endoscopy suites and recovery rooms all in one convenient location.
To meet a patient's specific scheduling needs, we offer a number of scheduling options. Plus, since all endoscopies at an AEC are scheduled, your procedure is rarely bumped or delayed by an emergency case.
Focus on the Patient:
We know exactly how many patients we will serve each day and can, therefore, staff appropriately to ensure very personal care. Our priority in the center is you and your procedure.
Since we do not have the overhead of a surgery facility that offers a range of procedures including those for the very seriously ill and emergency surgery, our AEC is typically able to perform your procedure at the same high level of care with the same specialized attention but at a lower cost, an especially nice advantage if you have a copay.
