We have some helpful information to make your experience with us pleasant and comfortable. Once your surgery date is set, you will have a Pre-Op Admissions phone call.
Pre-Op Admissions Call:
We want a smooth surgery day. An Olympia Surgery Center Registered Nurse will call you 1-2 business days before your surgery. Our nurse will go over your medical history, pre-op instructions, and answer any questions you may have. Your arrival time will be somewhere between 7 am and 1 pm. Exact time depends on the number of cases scheduled for that day, the type of procedure you are having done, and anethesia type required for your case. You will not be assigned an exact arrival time until your Pre-Op call 1-2 days before surgery.
Any admissions questions during this process should be directed to us at 210.257.8039.
Partnership with your Surgeon's Office:
Your physician's office will provide you with your Lab Orders (if needed) and any specific instructions that you need to follow, including medication issues. If an EKG is needed, it will be done the morning of your surgery. All lab work must be completed within 30 days of the surgery and the results faxed to us 24 hours before the surgery date. The clinic can answer questions about the procedures being performed as well as post-op instructions and recovery time. Please schedule your first Post-Op appointment with your surgeon in advance.
