Will I meet my anesthesiologist prior to surgery?
Yes, you will meet your anesthesiologist prior to surgery.
Your anesthesiologist will come to the preoperative admission area to meet you. After a thorough medical history is taken and a physical exam is performed, your anesthesiologist will discuss with you appropriate anesthetic options for your surgery. This is the best time to ask any remaining questions about your anesthetic and voice any concerns you may have. It is always helpful to learn of your prior anesthetic experiences so we can more personally tailor your anesthetic to your specific needs.
