Serving the Community for more than a decade, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center’s state-of-the-art pre-surgical testing department offers patients the convenience of having all tests required before surgery completed quickly and in one location. Pre-surgical provides accommodating hours, convenient parking and a helpful staff of registered nurses, physicians assistants, laboratory personnel and technicians.

Preoperative testing appointments are scheduled when a patient is booked for surgery in the operating room or if the patient is a special procedure patient undergoing cardiac catheterizations, radiology procedures or another specialty.

  • Insurance information

  • Picture ID
  • Paperwork from their physician

Are completed in approximately two and a half hours

Patients are usually seen up to 14-days before their scheduled procedures, but most are seen within seven-days of their procedures.
