For our outpatient (in-office) procedures, such as pain management steroid injections, vein treatments and procedures, and interventional vascular/spine therapy you may be asked to fast – not eat or drink for a certain time – and hold specific medications. Please never stop any medications without speaking with a nurse or provider before. If you have medications that need to be stopped, one of our nurses will reach out via telephone and give you proper instructions.
You may be asked to take certain medications prior to vein procedures – our nurses will also reach out and inform you they were sent to your pharmacy and will instruct you on how to take them.
