A Complete Pre-Op Exam
As mentioned above, a pre-op exam is necessary to ensure that you are in good health prior to your surgery. When you visit Familia Health Clinic for your pre-op exam, you can rest assured that you are in the best hands. Our doctors and nurses will perform the exam and answer any questions that you have so you can feel comfortable and confident going into your surgery.
Some doctors may request that you get a blood test before your surgery as part of your pre-op exam. Blood tests can tell your doctor a lot about your health, as well as help your doctor screen for any diseases or illnesses that may complicate your surgery. If you’re in need of a blood test, our team at Familia Health Clinic is here to help!
Another part of the pre-op exam is the urinalysis test. This test requires the patient to urinate into a cup, and then the urine is tested for various diseases, chemicals, and more. At Familia Health Clinic, we know that a urinalysis test can be one of the more embarrassing procedures, which is why we do our best to make you as comfortable as possible.
If you’re having a heart procedure, or your doctor is worried about your heart health during your surgery, you may also need to have an EKG during your pre-op exam. We know an EKG can be a bit scary, but our team at Familia Health Clinic is here to help put your mind at ease.
