If you are scheduled for pre-admission testing, your screening appointment will take about 4 hours. This appointment is difficult to reschedule, so if you need to change it, please contact our Pre-Admission Screening Office or your surgeon immediately so we can accommodate you.
During this visit, you will meet with several members of your care team, including a nurse practitioner/physician assistant and anesthesiologist. We will also perform some diagnostic tests to make sure there are no hidden problems and that you are in the best possible health for surgery.
