Pre-Surgical Phone Call

If you are not scheduled for a pre-surgical appointment, you may receive a phone call from a Rex nurse two to three days before a scheduled procedure. The interview will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

You will be asked if this is a convenient time to obtain this information or be given the option and phone number to call back at another time.

During the interview, the nurse will:

  • Review your health history
  • Review pre-operative instructions
  • Obtain a list of current medications and allergies
  • Ask you to obtain your most recent labs from your primary physician if applicable
  • Give you the opportunity to ask questions about your procedure
