PATIENT SATISFACTION

We know that any surgery can be stressful but it can be particularly stressful watching your child go through it. To hear more about our success with patient satisfaction listen to Logan’s story.

  • At 9 months old, Logan began having chronic ear problems. He went from his energetic self to chronic pain. By three years old Logan was a new kid. His surgeries at Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center had restored his energy and relieved his pain. Logan’s mom said he had a very positive outcome and she noted how compassionate and caring the Iowa City ASC staff was.

  • Dave Scholz has been a mountain bike addict and adventure seeker for over 20 years. At the age of 40 he suffered a rotator cuff injury after a ski accident then went on to re-injure his shoulder. After his last surgery he came to Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center. He loved the convenience of Iowa City ASC, his ability to easily schedule, and the follow up of the Iowa City ASC staff after the surgery.

  • The care I experienced at Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center was excellent. Everyone was friendly, nice and made my experience convenient…I would suggest to others that they consider Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center for their operation. It’s all around a better experience whether it’s cataract surgery or any other procedure you can have.

  • My overall experience was great! If I ever have any back issues again, I would no doubt feel comfortable going back to Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center. The pain I experienced the morning before my surgery was gone after my surgery when I woke up and went to post-op. I couldn’t believe that in a few short hours I could feel like myself again. Everyone at Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center was very kind, knew what they were doing and I could tell they enjoyed working there. In my eyes, the Iowa City Ambulatory Surgical Center is top notch.
