CONGRATS TO YARROW BAY PLASTIC SURGERY!!
We passed our AAAASF certification on our first try! That is the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF)
They were very impressed with our facility and we got word on the letter on Wednesday.
Thanks to all of our staff for their extra time and hard work to make this happen.
The following is taken from the AAAASF website:
