  • A responsible adult must accompany the patient to the office, remain in the office during the procedure, and drive the patient home.
  • The patient should not drive a vehicle or operate any machinery for 24 hours following the anesthesia experience.
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing with short sleeves and low-heeled shoes.
  • Contact lenses, jewelry, and dentures must be removed at the time of surgery.
  • Do not wear lipstick, makeup, or nail polish on the day of surgery.
  • If you have an illness such as a cold, sore throat, sinus trouble, stomach or bowel upset, please notify the office. We may need to reschedule your appointment.

If you take routine oral medications, please check with Dr. Haim prior to your surgical date for instructions.
