PAA Mobile Patient Center

What Can PAA Mobile Do For You

If you require a procedure, you may be wondering what options are best. While a hospital is the traditional setting for surgery and other types of procedures, many patients now prefer to be cared for in the office setting. Mobile is the Office-Based Anesthesiology section of Providence Anesthesiology Associates (PAA). Our physicians specialize in ambulatory (outpatient) techniques, so our patients receive a state-of-the-art anesthetic within the privacy of their surgeon’s office. Patients can be assured that they benefit from the same hospital-based safety standards established by PAA.

Exemplary Care At Your Surgeon’s Office

  • A physician anesthesiologist and a PACU trained nurse for every patient.
  • An anesthetic specifically tailored for a fast and comfortable recovery.
  • Continuous assessment of the quality of care we deliver.
  • Unwavering dedication to your safety that goes above and beyond hospital-based standards.
  • Reduced COVID-related concerns associated with a busy hospital setting

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to have my surgery/procedure done in an office?
PAA Mobile is setting the gold standard for safety in the office setting. With Mobile, an anesthesiologist is dedicated to caring for you and only you. This unwavering attention of the physician means you can rest assured that you are receiving the best possible care. We have a strict adherence to the same safety standards we follow in the hospital. Safety also extends to the recovery room, also known as the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). Mobile is unique in that our team is always composed of not only the physician anesthesiologist but just as importantly, a nurse with PACU or ICU training. The Mobile nurse addresses your immediate post-op needs and is specifically trained to recognize any safety issues, intervening as necessary. This is a standard of care above and beyond any compliance regulations, but we believe it to be critically important.
What can I expect in preparation for my surgery?

Your surgeon’s office will provide you with information to access our online patient portal. You will enter your medical history, which will be reviewed by a pre-op nurse, and if necessary, they will reach out to you for further discussion. We will also ensure that any necessary labs/studies or physician consults have been completed. You can opt into our text notification system for added peace of mind.

Specific pre-op instructions for the day of surgery can be found here: Pre-anesthesia instructions.

What type of anesthesia can be done in the surgeon’s office?
Any anesthetic that could be done at a surgery center can be done in an office. Your medical history and your procedure will determine the best type of anesthesia for you. Depth of anesthesia is a continuous spectrum that ranges from sedation to general anesthesia. If your surgeon is using our Mobile services, rest assured that you will be safe and comfortable throughout your procedure. Our data also shows that our Mobile anesthesiologists deliver care that reduces the time to discharge and increases patient satisfaction. You will have the opportunity to meet with your anesthesiologist and discuss the specific plan on the day of your procedure.

What can I expect to pay?

Office-based procedures are typically far more cost-effective than going to the hospital or a surgery center. We strive to minimize out-of-pocket expenses to the patient. What you pay will depend in part on your specific insurance plan.
