  • I have had the misfortune for 42 years to have to deal with countless medical facilities and medical teams. A dozen surgeries, 15-18 procedures, etc. I will tell you that the lion share of them have been positive experiences. Iowa City ASC and the team that cared for me stood out amongst them all. EVERY single person was over the top fantastic! I have never been treated with such kindness, compassion, and great care as I was the morning I was there. EVERY single person made me feel like I was their long lost best friend. I felt as though I was the only person they had to work with that day. It was a fantastic experience. I must say I do hope I don't ever have to see your facility again but if I'm in need I will go nowhere else.

  • I really enjoyed the people there. From the front desk when I checked in to the time I left, everyone was very caring and attentive to the things I needed. I appreciated all the smiling faces in a place that was originally very scary for me. I didn't get a chance to thank everyone but I hope they all know how much I appreciated their generosity and comfort. It was the first surgery I've ever had and the first one my mom has had to go through with a child and I know she was just as pleased with everything as I was.

When To See An ENT Specialist
  • When we arrived at Iowa City ASC early in the morning for my knee surgery I was met by a team of people who seemed glad to be at work and glad that I was in their facility. Their overall desire to discuss what they needed from me and to assist in meeting my needs was a welcomed situation. Each person truly impressed me with their professionalism and attitude.  The team was attentive to the situation at hand and I feel that contributed to the overall success of my surgery at Iowa City ASC.  I did not even know that my Knee Surgery was the first of this type performed at the ASC until we were ready to go home a few hours after surgery when it was mentioned in passing. The Iowa City ASC team made it seem as though this was an ongoing procedure or process so they should be applauded. Their experience, professionalism, training and smiles made my surgery at Iowa City ASC a success.
