Quad A Accreditation
The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. was established in 1980 to standardize and improve the quality of medical and surgical care in outpatient facilities and assure the public that patient safety is a top priority in an accredited facility. Quad A now accredits thousands of international and domestic facilities, making it one of the largest not-for-profit accrediting organizations in the United States. Physicians, clinicians, legislators, state and national health agencies, and patients acknowledge that Quad A sets the “gold standard” for quality patient care.
Accreditation represents a high level of attention to the details that make an ambulatory medical facility safer. Quad A has developed stringent, nationally recognized standards that are continuously reviewed and revised as new developments occur. Patient safety is never compromised when standards are amended.

The Day of Surgery
On the day of surgery, you report directly to Advanced Plastic Surgery entrance. Once in the waiting room, you will be greeted by our surgery nurse, who will accompany you through the pre and post-operative process.
The space itself is calming and expansive with an abundance of natural light. You will recognize the signature color and themes associated with Advanced Plastic Surgery. Once settled in the pre-op area, you will meet with your anesthesiologist who will be with you during the entire surgery. You will also meet with Dr. Timek who will complete your surgical markings before being escorted to the operating room.
Following your procedure, you are transferred to the recovery room. Our top priority in recovery is assuring your comfort and well-being. You will be accompanied by our surgery nurse until you recover. Once recovered, you are escorted by your nurse, through a private exit, directly to your waiting companion or family member.
