A registered nurse will call you prior to your scheduled surgery date to review your pre-operative instructions, including when to stop eating and drinking, obtain a brief medical history, confirm your arrival time and give you tips on how to prepare for your home care. We will need to get personal health information such as the names of medications you take as well as the dose and how often you take them. We will be asking for your private health information and it is important you are in a place where you feel comfortable discussing your personal information.
A member of our business office will call you to discuss the amount of any co-pay or deductibles that may need to be met and paid upon registration. We accept cash, credit cards, personal checks, cashier checks and money order for payment. We also encourage patients to verify their own coverage and obligations.
