Give yourself plenty of time so that you can reach the office without feeling
hurried.

Fear often originates from the unknown. Please feel free to ask us any questions
you might have. You may wish to consult Dr. Sandhu about a pre-medication
which could help you with anxiety management. If you opt for pre-medication for
anxiety control, you will need to bring a driver with you.

To maintain an adequate blood sugar level.

Please be confident that we will take good care of you.

All of our staff is available and willing to help you with any of your questions or
concerns.

helpful for you to have some of the following items in your home:

Ice cream, yogurt, milk shake, cottage cheese, sherbet, applesauce, jello, or anything else that fits the description of cold/cool and soft foods.

Please take 2 to 3 tablets of ibuprofen (Advil) before arriving for your
