Patient Reviews

“I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you regarding your involvement in my surgery on November 21st. As this most recent surgery was the seventh surgery I have had in which sedation was necessary, I was pleased with how the sedation went thanks to your efforts. During all of my previous surgeries, I suffered from post sedation nausea which made the post-surgery experience not very enjoyable. Because you took the time to take this into account and to make adjustments to my sedation plan, I had absolutely no post sedation nausea side effects after my surgery on Thursday. So again, I'd like to express my appreciation and sincere thanks.” — Mike S.
