Preparation Instructions

Transportation Assistance
Atherton Endoscopy Center requires that you have a responsible adult accompany you home and inside your house after your procedure. You will not be allowed to drive yourself home or to take a taxi or bus. Your procedure will be canceled unless you have an appropriate ride home. It is your responsibility to find your own ride. Please talk to your doctor if you anticipate being unable to find a ride.

Please call the Atherton Endoscopy Center if you are using one of these means of transportation and we will let you know what time they can pick you up. We may ask you to stay a little longer than normal if you are not going home with a family member or friend.
