At Pre-Operative Services we help prepare patients for a successful and safe hospital experience. The Pre-operative team works with patients to identify and modify risk factors to ensure the best possible outcome and to prevent last minute delays and cancellation of surgery.
The pre-operative team is led by Dr. Deborah Richman
The team is composed of:
Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants who perform pre-operative history and physical examinations and provide patient education.
Registered Nurses who are responsible for collecting patient information, consults/clearances, consents, and test results for delivery to the operating room staff.
Clinical Assistants who perform all necessary lab work & EKG’s.
Clerical Staff who manage appointments and registration information.
Anesthesiologists who are physicians that assess patients for anesthesia risks and discuss anesthesia options
