Our certification:

The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) was established in 1980. Its primary mission is to ensure the highest quality patient care in the ambulatory surgery setting. today, with more than 550 accredited outpatient surgical facilities, the not-for-profit AAAASF is the largest accrediting organization of its kind in the United States.

The vast majority of ambulatory surgery facilities are unaccredited, operating independent of any peer review and inspection process. A growing number of states throughout the country, however, are recognizing the need for mandatory accreditation. AAAASF is in the forefront of legislation efforts to provide patients with safety and quality assurance in the outpatient setting.

In 1996, California become the first state to mandate accreditation for all outpatient facilities that administer sedation or general anesthesia. AAAASF was instrumental in the development of the California legislation (AB 595) as well as subsequent laws and regulations adopted by states as Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas. AAAASF accreditation guidelines have been recognized as the ‘gold standard,” providing the highest level of safety and quality in ambulatory surgical care.

The majority of private insurance carriers recognize accreditation by AAAASF for reimbursement of covered procedures. AAAASF accreditation has been approved by state Departments of Health in lieu of state licensure and, with additional standards, has been approved for deemed status in lieu of Medicare certification.

All AAAASF accredited facilities must:

  • comply with applicable local, state, and federal regulations including fire safety, sanitation and building codes for the protection of patients and medical personnel;
  • adhere to federal laws and regulations affecting their operations such as OSHA blood-borne pathogens standards, hazardous waste standards, and the Americans with Disabilities Act;
  • utilize advanced instruments and monitoring devices for patient safety during surgery and in the recovery period;
  • allow surgery to be performed only by qualified surgeons who have privileges to perform the same surgical procedures in an accredited hospital. Surgeons must meet the standards, such as peer-review and continuing medical education, required for operating in an accredited hospital. Surgeons must be certified (or eligible for certification) in surgical specialties recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. This is an important distinction between AAAASF and other organizations that may not require this high standard of qualifications for physicians operating within their accredited facilities; and
  • provide for the administration of general anesthesia, when appropriate, by a board-certified or board-eligible anesthesiologist or a certifies registered nurse anesthetist. Other personnel assisting in surgery and providing care for the patient in the recovery room include specially trained surgical technicians, registered nurses, and licensed practical nurses.

AAAASF rigorously inspects and evaluates each facility seeking accreditation to ensure that is meets the highest standards. After accreditation is achieved, AAAASF requires an annual in-house evaluation to identify any areas that may need improvement. Every three years, a formal site inspection is performed by a trained AAAASF representative.

Dr Ross is the best! He's one of the most caring and talented doctors I have had the pleasure of having. He is an incredible surgeon and has done 2 procedures for me. ⭐ BOTH MASTERPIECES⭐ My most recent procedure, I insisted my before and after photos go up on his website because women need to see what this man can do! I sure hope he puts them up. He has gone above and beyond and has treated me like a princess since day 1. I am very grateful for his service.Now his staff is no different and will go the lengths to make sure all is well. Riana at the front desk is outstanding, and she is the first person that you meet. She's organized, attractive, smart, and has a very genuine personality. Most importantly though, She's welcoming! She makes you feel good, and makes the scheduling, and the payment stuff easy breezy.Egle, the medical assistant was very pleasant. I found her to be very detail-oriented, very polite, professional, and well-dressed. I felt confident asking her questions because I could tell that she was well educated. She paid attention to me and took her time. I appreciated that.Sarah was my nurse. I really enjoyed her care and attention. She is cute as a button, and went above and beyond to connect with me as a patient and listened to my concerns. (Thank you so much for being so caring, and fun. I enjoyed laughing with you).THANKS AGAIN DR ROSS! THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR TALENT WITH ME🤝

I went to your office for dermaplaning/facial and was treated like an absolute queen. I had services by Cat who is extremely knowledgeable in her field and answered all my questions plus some. She was very welcoming, kind, and personable. I walked out of there feeling extremely rejuvenated and will definitely be returning to see her!
