Patients that need Pre-Admission Testing:
If your doctor has instructed you to complete labs, EKG or Chest X-ray prior to your procedure, please call and schedule an appointment. We will try to find a time that is convenient for you to come in and complete your testing. This appointment will take approximately 1-2 hours depending on your medical history. In order to expedite the visit, please bring a list of your medications with dosage and frequency (including vitamins and supplements), your driver’s license (or photo ID) and your insurance cards.
Patients that do NOT need Pre-Admission Testing:
Due to the high volume of phone calls, patients will be contacted by a (Pre-Assessment Testing) PAT Nurse via telephone. Patients are typically contacted 48-72 hours before their scheduled surgery. In order to expedite the call, please have a list of your medication and surgeries available. If your call is missed, please leave a voice message with the best contact phone number. A return phone call will be made as soon as possible. Patients will be contacted based on the order of their surgery date.
Monday – Friday
8:30am – 5:00pm
During this call, you will learn what to expect during your visit and have the opportunity to ask questions. Thank you for trusting North Central with your healthcare needs.
