Meet Our Team


Can I have anything to eat or drink before my Pre-Anesthesia Testing (PAT) appointment?

Yes, you can eat or drink as you normally would before your appointment.

Should I take my medications before my appointment?

Yes, please take your medications as prescribed by your doctor as you normally would on the day of your appointment.

What should I bring to my PAT appointment?

Please bring a photo ID and insurance cards and all medications, including prescription and over the counter. It is also helpful to bring the bottles for your medications so our nurse can track how much you take and how often you take them.

If you have them, please also bring any copies of recent tests, such as stress tests or cardiac cath.

Will I need to register before my appointment?

Yes, we ask patients to please stop at the registration desk to provide information and receive your identification armband before proceeding to PAT.

What kind of information will you need from me during my PAT appointment?

Our team will ask you questions about your medical history, previous surgical history, allergies, medications, any recent visits to a specialty doctor, such as a cardiologist (heart doctor) or pulmonologist (lung doctor). 

What time do I need to arrive for my appointment?

Please arrive 15-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.

How long will my appointment take?

Depending on the specific tests ordered by your provider, such as labs, EKG (to track your heart’s rhythm) or xrays, and your medical interview with PAT, your appointment could last between 45 minutes and two hours.
