      What services are provided?

One stop pre-operative patient education and anesthesia screening, peri-operative patient care, and overnight services as needed(determined on a case by case basis).

      How do I schedule outpatient ambulatory surgery?

Ambulatory surgery may be scheduled through one of our six specialty clinics (Orthopedics, Podiatry, Oral Surgery, General Surgery, ENT, or Ophthalmology). Appointments to these clinics for an initial pre-surgical evaluation are accomplished through a referral by your Primary Care Manager.

Yes, if requirements are met based on the referral system and TRICARE.
