Pre-Surgical Testing

Thank you, if you have chosen St. Anthony's for your upcoming surgical procedure. It is not unusual to feel apprehensive undergoing surgery. We are committed to providing exceptional patient care, promoting patient education, and enhancing patient safety.


Step 1 | Schedule your Pre-Surgical Testing appointment

Step 2 | Please be sure to bring the following documents with you to your Pre-Surgical Testing appointment to streamline your visit:
  • Photo ID
  • Insurance Card
  • Folder with your surgeon's orders.

Step 3 | Prepare a list of Medications

Prepare a list of all current medications or (even better) put ALL your medications in a bag to bring to your Pre-Surgical Testing visit.

Your Pre-Admissions nurse will be reviewing this with you. Don't forget herbal supplements, over-the-counter medications, and/or vitamins taken regularly should be included.
