Your doctor may have you complete a PREP visit for a nursing assessment, labs, x-rays and/or an EKG at the hospital before the day of your procedure. If tests are not ordered by your doctor, one of our nurses will call you the day before your surgery to get information about your past medical history.
Please call to schedule an appointment with our PREP Department. Although an appointment is not necessary, you may have to wait if one is not scheduled. If our hours of operation do not fit your needs, please call and we will arrange a time that fits into your schedule. To contact us, you may call: 337-769-4168 during hours of operation. Please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
