Preadmission Testing (P.A.T.)
We are pleased you have selected to have your surgery at CMMC
Prior to your scheduled surgery you will have an appointment with a member of our P.A.T. team which may be scheduled in our office or via a telephone interview.
During this visit, a registered nurse will review your health history, complete an anesthesia screening, and review your medications and allergies. You may also need further testing in preparation for your surgery, such as an EKG, chest x-ray, and/or lab work. All testing will be coordinated with your Preadmission Testing appointment.
Please bring the following with you to your appointment or have information available during your phone interview:
- an up to date list of your medications, including prescription and over-the-counter medications, including dosage information
- a list of any allergies
- a list of any previous surgeries
- The names and telephone numbers of your primary care physician and any specialist you are seeing
- A copy of Health Care Proxy or Living Will, if applicable
Our registered nurse will review pre-surgery instructions including medication instructions. Written instructions will be provided for further review following the appointment. We welcome any questions that you may have.
This appointment can take up to two hours.
