Planning Your Visit to EOSC

At EOSC, the health and safety of our patients comes first. We understand all medical care cannot be delayed during this COVID-19 pandemic and we want patients to feel confident about our continued commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for everyone.

How We Are Keeping You Safe

Guided by the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), federal/state, and local health recommendations, we have applied the following safety measures for your protection:
  • Symptom screening and temperature checks for everyone entering the facility.
  • Face masks requirement for staff and patients at all times.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfection for all areas of the facility.
  • Physical distancing in waiting and clinical areas of the facility.
  • Limited visitors to our facility. (Please note: At this time, we are not allowing anyone accompanying a patient to stay in our waiting room. You will be asked to leave and will be called once the patient is ready for pick up. In addition, only one parent/guardian will be allowed to stay with our pediatric patients.)

Do Your Part

We ask that patients call to reschedule their surgeries or procedures if during the last 14 days they have experienced any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Vomiting or diarrhea (Please note: Diarrhea related to colonoscopy prep is to be expected.)
  • New loss of taste or smell

COVID-19 testing may be required for patients scheduled for a surgery or procedure. Please follow your physician’s office testing instructions.

  • I would like to give a big shout out to the following nurses/Dr. for making my son and I feel comfortable and safe from the moment we walk in, to the moment my son was discharged. They were all beyond sweet and caring with my boy and attended to his needs at all times with extra warm blankets saying sweet and caring words to him.Once again, I can't thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedicationto your patients.

  • Wonderful caregivers at a modern, clean, comfortable facility. From check-in to prep to check-out, everyone was very professional and very kind. They put me at ease and made a nervous day into no big deal

  • Even though a colonoscopy is not a procedure that an of us like to have done. It is a necessary procedure and Encino Outpatient Surgery Center made it painless. Both Dr. Hepps and the staff were pleasant, helpful, friendly and I would recommend both the Encino Surgery Center and Dr. Hepps to anyone who needs a colonoscopy. I also want to assure you that the center is very clean.

  • I never thought going for a routine colonoscopy would be a pleasant experience, but honestly, it could not have been any better. The staff was kind and comforting, the Center was clean and accommodating, and all billing was explained in advance so there were no surprises.All my pre-nervousness and anxiety was for nothing.

  • Three weeks ago I had my tonsils removed by Dr. Namazie and I could not be happier with both Dr. Namazie and everyone at the surgery center. From the front desk, to the nurses, to Dr. Glaser the anesthesiologist everything went perfectly. Thank you all for what you do
