Scheduling Your Medical Procedure
Scheduling for your procedure will be managed through your physician’s office. Once your surgery has been successfully scheduled, your doctor will provide you with all of the information that you need.
Before Your Scheduled Procedure
Upon approval for surgery, your insurance company will provide you with an authorization number. You will be required to provide that number at the time of pre-registration, and again during your pre-admission interview and assessment.
If you do not have the authorization number, your surgery may be delayed or rescheduled. Without authorization, any services performed may become your financial responsibility.
Pre-Registration Information Telephone Call
The Admissions department will call to obtain information to register you for your surgery.
Pre-Registration Interview & Assessment
Prior to your procedure, our Admitting Department staff will schedule a convenient appointment with you to obtain certain health information and schedule any required pre-operative tests ordered by your physician, so that test results are back prior to your surgery.
- Patients are seen by appointment. Walk-ins will be worked in as our schedule permits.
- Minors (18 years and younger) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
- Plan on 1 to 1-1/2 hours for the interview process. This includes all lab work, X-rays and an EKG if ordered by your physician.
