About Us

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
