Welcome to the Woolfson Eye Institute Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Our mission is to deliver the highest quality patient care in our state-of-the-art outpatient surgical facility that was designed and developed with your safety and comfort in mind. We look forward to your experiencing our world-class care within this advanced, comfortable, and convenient surgery center.
Our surgeons are nationally recognized as leaders in their fields.
Woolfson Eye Institute (WEI) prides itself on being at the forefront of ocular and cosmetic surgery. Our surgeons are nationally recognized as leaders in their fields, and our entire medical staff is committed to ensuring your satisfaction and meeting all of your needs while in our care. That, in many ways, answers the question of why WEI maintains its own ASC. Delivering on our mission to provide the “Woolfson Difference” each and every moment that each and every patient is with us, certainly has to include the time spent in surgical preparation, surgery, and recovery.
Our surgeons alone aren’t the only unique advantage you’ll experience with us. Our caring and compassionate staff members also clearly understand that surgery – even minor surgery – can be stressful for any patient and his or her family and friends. From the moment you set foot in our ASC to the moment you leave, we are available to answer any of your questions and help ease any anxiety you may have as we do everything possible to make your surgical visit with us comfortable, pleasant, and informative.
We have received the Gold Seal of Accreditation … ensuring the highest national standards for safety and quality of care.
Our ASC is not only licensed by the State of Georgia but has also received the prestigious Gold Seal of Accreditation from The Joint Commission. This accreditation ensures that our ASC complies with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care. We have also been given Deemed Status from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Your comfort and satisfaction is our #1 Goal.
