Our staff at the Southern New Mexico Surgery Center recognizes that your time is important. Prolonged waiting before a procedure is both unnerving and inconvenient to you and the people who have accompanied you to our center. We utilize our computer data and requests of your surgeons/physicians to construct a schedule that attempts to be as efficient as possible. However there are many factors outside of our control that can alter the progression of starting times, resulting in delay or change (even forward) in the time of your procedure.
Example of these factors is:
Whenever there is a change in your anticipated procedure starting time, our staff will keep you informed and provide updates. Please be sure to ask our staff if you have any questions regarding your surgical time.
You will receive a patient satisfaction survey following your procedure at SNMSC. SNMSC is committed to continually improving the services we provide to our patients. We would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete the survey and return it in the self-addressed, postage-paid envelope. You may submit the survey results via email if you have provided a personal email address to the organization.
