You will not be permitted to leave the facility in a taxi, alone. We have a parking structure next door. We ask that you limit family and/or friends to just one companion who can wait for you and drive you home. While most procedures typically take less than 30 minutes, the preparations and recovery time will make your visit last approximately 2 hours. If your family/friend leaves, please have him or her leave a cell or contact phone number, so that we can call him or her when you are ready to go home.
