When our patients need surgery or other medical care that requires anesthesia, our Anesthesiology staff makes the experience as safe and comfortable as possible.
Our Anesthesiologists develop an individualized anesthetic plan for each patient and employ a full range of techniques to ensure patient safety and comfort before, during, and after every procedure.

Appointment No-Shows and Late Arrivals-It is the policy of Regional West Physicians Clinic to monitor and manage appointment no-shows and late appointments. Any patient who arrives 15 minutes after their scheduled appointment time is considered late for his or her appointment. Regional West Physicians Clinic will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the patient within the patient session or to reschedule the patient at the earliest possible time, based on the nature of the presenting reason for the visit and the patient’s wishes.
