Pre-Admission Testing

If your doctor's office did not schedule your Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) appointment and Surgical Services has not called you, please call 410.535.8343 to make one. Pre-Admission Testing is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Most interviews are now completed over the phone. If you are required to come into the Medical Center the nursing staff will coordinate with you to find a time that works best with your schedule.

Your surgery may require you to come to the Medical Center ahead of time for diagnostic tests, if not already completed by your primary care physician. You will also have a detailed medical history taken by a registered nurse in Pre-Admission Testing.

During your interview, you will receive pre-operative instructions and learn what to expect the day of your surgery. You will have time to ask questions and to speak with an anesthesia staff member, if necessary. This appointment may be scheduled a week or more before surgery. Please be aware that due to some HMO restrictions, you may be required to go elsewhere for your diagnostic testing-labs, EKG, etc. Please have a list of the prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you currently take ready for your phone call. A family member may assist with past medical history if necessary.

If you come into the Medical Center for your appointment, please bring your insurance cards and your photo ID. Any co-pay or deductible are expected at the time of pre-admission registration. This information will be collected over the phone by our registration team for all patients who do not require in person assessments. If unable to pay, please make arrangements with our Billing Department prior to your PAT appt. For more information, call 410.535.8248.

Please use the front parking lot reserved for surgical patients and enter through the main lobby. Check-in at the registration desk in front and they’ll direct you from there.
