Preparing for Your Procedure 

Below are general protocols and guidelines to prepare for surgery, however it is important to discuss with your physician any specific protocols or questions regarding your surgery. Please review the Pre-Procedure Notices so you are fully aware of our privacy policies and have an advance directive in place if desired. Please download and fax completed forms 48 hours prior to surgery.

Will I be contacted prior to my surgery by the facility?

Yes. You may receive up to three calls. You will be contacted a few days prior to surgery by your physician’s office with instructions for the day of surgery, and answer any questions you may have. You may also be contacted by someone in the surgery center’s business office to address financial matters such as your responsibility for co-payments and deductibles. Finally, you may also be contacted by Preston Surgery Center. In case you do not hear from us by the day before your procedure, it is a good idea to give us a call. We may not have your correct contact information.

What should I bring?

  • Please bring a photo identification (driver’s license) and your insurance card(s). Our staff will need to verify and make copies when you check-in on the day of your surgery.
  • Be sure to bring any medications that you may need during your stay at the facility (e.g., inhaler or insulin).
  • Please bring a list of all medications you are currently taking.
  • Please bring payment of any patient responsibility (e.g. co-payment or deductible)
  • Please do not bring jewelry such as rings, watches, or any other valuables.

Should I arrange a ride to the facility?

Yes - You will not be allowed to drive after surgery. Please arrange for a responsible adult to drive you home and for someone to be with you when you arrive for your procedure. You will also need to arrange for a responsible adult to stay with you for 24 hours after surgery.

What may I eat and drink before surgery?

Your physician or a pre-operative nurse will inform you of eating and drinking restrictions prior to surgery. It is very important that you follow the provided instructions. If you do not, your surgery may be delayed or cancelled.

Should I take my routine medications on the day of surgery?

You will be given instructions regarding medications by your physician or from one of our nurses. Also, as noted above, please be prepared to list all medications (including name, dose, and the last time you took medication) you are currently taking and to bring any with you that may be needed during your stay (e.g., inhaler or insulin). This will also include any over the counter medications you may be taking, such as Aspirin or Vitamins.

Financial Arrangements

Prior to scheduling surgery our staff verifies your eligibility and benefits for outpatient surgery available to you as a member through your insurance carrier. In the event insurance rejects a claim, benefits are less than expected, or any procedures are performed in addition to what was scheduled you will be notified and billed accorddingly. We will work to resubmit claims and provide transparency in all costs you may acquire. 

Our business office hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Feel free to call us any time during these hours if you have a question concerning your estimated bill or if you have any questions concerning our billing policy.
