Which factors might require me to have my surgery elsewhere?

If your surgical procedure requires general anesthesia, respiratory assistance, or an overnight stay in the hospital, you need to have surgery in a facility that offers a higher level of support.

However, minor surgery that doesn’t require these elements, such as mole removal or breast biopsy, can be performed right at First Keller Healthcare. They have all the expertise and equipment needed to ensure a complete, comfortable recovery.

How is follow-up care handled?

Your first follow-up appointment will be scheduled before you ever leave the clinic.

You can expect to see the same doctor for your follow-up appointments whenever possible. You’ll receive clear instructions for care at home as well as contact information should questions or concerns arise while you heal from your procedure.

When can I expect biopsy results?

If you’ve had a biopsy taken, results return within seven days. Ask your provider or your nurse for a more specific deadline; they know which tests are occurring and how long they take.
