We take the job title “healthcare professional” very seriously. Not only are we committed to the highest standards of diagnosing and treating an array of digestive health issues, we proactively recognize the full scope of our patients’ needs leading up to and beyond their procedure. Our brochure highlights important points of interest, outlines basic requirements, and details expectations all patients should have of The Northern New Jersey Center for Advanced Endoscopy.
What to Expect
Assuming you come fully prepared, expect to be at the Center for approximately 2 hours on the day of your endoscopy procedure. First, we will have you check in at the reception desk and fill out our patient forms (if you have not already done so). We will ask you to pay your copay. Next, a staff member will walk you to the Procedure Room where you will be prepped and given anesthesia, if necessary. Most GI Procedures take between 15 and 40 minutes. Last, you will spend approximately 30-45 minutes in the Recovery Room. Your escort will be there to listen attentively to post-visit instructions, as you will likely be somewhat fatigued and woozy. After discharge instructions commence, you will be allowed to leave the Center.
