Referral Process

You must be referred to one of our surgical services by your health care provider. Many patients requiring elective surgery will be scheduled to visit the pre-operative clinic prior to their surgery date. Each patient will meet a nurse who will provide him or her with information about what to expect. The nurse will ensure all required tests and paperwork are complete. Some patients will also be scheduled to see an anesthesiologist who will ensure any potential health problems are identified. It is important that you bring your health card, all your current medications and any records concerning your health. We strive to provide excellence in surgical services to our patients and our community.
