Patients & Visitors
Registration for surgical procedures opens at 5:30 a.m. for our patients. Patients are asked to arrive two to three hours prior to their scheduled surgery time in case the doctor has ordered any tests or treatments prior to the procedure.
To ensure that your family is well informed, USMD offers family members/visitors a pager for use during surgery, which will be provided at check-in. These pagers work anywhere in our facility, as well as up to 45 miles from the hospital, allowing freedom from the hospital Surgery Waiting Area.
At the end of the surgical procedure, the surgeon routinely visits with family members/ visitors, so please respond immediately when paged. When paged, the person should return to the Surgery Waiting Area on the second floor or call the number listed on the front of the pager.
