ROUTINE PATIENT DELAY –
At Vaatsalya , we prioritizes the health and safety of each patient. We are committed to using the best clinical judgment for patient care. At times, our patients may experience urgent, time-sensitive, emergent issues. Some are very wonderful, such as the imminent birth of a baby. Some are less wonderful, such as emergency laparoscopy. At these times, our providers must prioritize the emergent case over routine appointments. Our staff will do their best to accommodate you, either by rescheduling, helping you feel comfortable while you wait, or re-directing you to another provider in our office. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but if you experience an urgent need, you will be happy to know our providers will make you the priority!

DISCHARGE: Because patients are going home the same day in a A DAY CARE SURGERY , as their surgery, it is important to ask questions about home care.
