WE WORK WITH HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS
We work with major health systems, ambulatory surgical centers, and private practices. We ensure that the post-procedure discharge process is quick and hassle-free. By Federal law, patients who have undergone an ambulatory medical procedure must be signed out by an adult.
We sign patients out from medical procedures such as endoscopies, colonoscopies, fertility treatments, eye surgeries, dental surgeries, and plastic surgeries. We accompany patients to and from their follow-up appointments and other appointments. Patients can rest assured that we will maintain their privacy and confidentiality.
