Schedule early.

Schedule your procedure for as early in the day as possible. Most doctors prohibit patients from eating for eight hours prior to surgery, so having an early appointment will reduce hunger pains throughout the day. Having a morning procedure will also reduce the anxiety that builds up as the day wears on, and will increase your chances of being taken on time.
