Medical Clearance

Our office has been accredited by the AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care), a nationally recognized association for excellence in healthcare delivery.

Our standard of care is comparable to a hospital in that we are required to maintain a back-up generator, medical gases monitoring equipment, defibrillators and much more in addition to having a staff trained in basic and advanced life support.

We utilize Board Certified MD Anesthesiologists from North American Partners in Anesthesia (N.A.P.A.). With a Board Certified MD Anesthesiologist administering your anesthesia, Dr. Pierri, your surgeon, can completely focus on your procedure.
