Scheduling a Surgical Procedures

Scheduling a Surgical Procedure

Once you and your surgeon decide that surgery is necessary, the surgeon's office staff will schedule your procedure and send the required registration information to the hospital. Your surgeon may order preadmission tests such as blood tests, chest x-rays, MRIs, ECGs or other pertinent studies. The surgeon will fax a referral to the hospital so we know what tests, if any, to perform. After the hospital receives the pre-surgical testing referral, you will receive a call to schedule your testing appointment and nurse interview.

Your surgeon may also ask you to visit your primary care physician, cardiologist or another physician to evaluate your medical condition prior to surgery. Send written medical evaluations to Doylestown Hospital (Fax: 215.345.2129), if you have these in your possession.

At the surgeon's office, you will sign a Consent for Surgery form. The surgeon will also provide orders for our hospital nurses to follow when you arrive for your procedure. A history and physical will also be done and sent to the hospital.

In some cases, your insurance plan may require you to have testing done at a specific site or your primary care physician's office. This information is necessary to evaluate your medical condition and plan your care during surgery. Your surgeon's registration form will identify specific insurance information. It is still necessary for you to bring your insurance card to the hospital on your preadmission visit. Your surgeon’s office or a financial counselor at Doylestown Hospital will do verification of insurance for your scheduled surgery. Bring hospital referrals with you when you come for your preadmission visit.
