- The nurse will discuss what medications you should stop taking and/or continue to take.

Hear What Our Patients Have To Say...
I would’ve done this sooner if I had known it was so pain free and easy. By far the most comfortable and smooth experience I’ve ever had with a healthcare service provider. Thank you!
My husband and I were impressed with the entire staff. Everyone was caring and respectful...they just had a nice personal touch and it really put us at ease because we knew we were in good hands.
The level of care - before, during and after the procedure - was just phenomenal. You can tell when people are truly passionate about what they do and it makes a big difference. We are so glad we found the Ascentist team!
