Our staff will also tell you more about your proposed surgery, collect any laboratory work needed and conduct any other necessary testing and consultations. This collection of all essential information insures that all documentation and information will be complete on your day of surgery and that you will be prepared. Services are provided from 0800 A.M to 0600 P.M., Monday through Friday.
