As I entered through the front door, I was immediately greeted with a warm smile. After a quick and easy check-in I took a seat in the lobby. The furniture and art was upscale yet comfortable. The decor was kind of retro looking with soothing colors. Then a nurse came to get me and with a smile and friendly chit chat took me to a pre-op room. It was more like a typical examination room (no tv, no bed) and I sat in a recliner while BP and temp were taken, then hooked up to IV.
The nurse warned me that the antibiotic in the IV could cause “redneck rash” and if it does, pull the cord for assistance and they will give me Benedryl. Well 10 minutes later my scalp was suddenly crawling with biting fire ants, or so it seemed. I pulled the cord and continued to frantically scratch my scalp off with my french manicure.
A male nurse happened by the room and saw the light on. He stuck his head in and said “you need Benedryl, don’t you?” YES, I yelled (not really yelled, more of a beg.) He came back quickly, slowed the IV and added Benedryl. Ahhh, immediate relief, except the raised rash on my forehead remained.
Then another very nice nurse took me to OR. When I woke up I had yet another super nice nurse who never left my side in recovery and gave me ice chips each time I asked. Then yet another super cute and nice nurse did the checkout procedure with me and wheeled me out to my awaiting car.
Since pretty much all surgical centers are probably clean, professional and competent, I feel that writing about the PEOPLE and how I was treated was more important to review. So for that, I give this place FIVE STARS!
