Pre-Operative Evaluation

Many surgeons will request a pre-operative medical evaluation or "clearance" letter before scheduling an elective surgical procedure. This evaluation helps ensure that you are healthy enough to safely undergo the procedure.  Dr. Berens is a board-certified family physician and can perform this evaluation (including EKG) in her office.

Doctor's Visit

Pre-operative Evaluation


This appointment includes a review of your health history and medications, a physical exam, review of bloodwork, and an EKG if needed. 

Please bring a copy of your most recent bloodwork to the appointment. If you have not had bloodwork in the last 6 months, please contact us so that we can send you lab orders prior to your appointment. Labs must be completed at least 48hrs in advance of your appointment. You may have your labs drawn at any LabCorp location. Please fast for at least 8hrs before having your labs drawn.

This appointment is available in-office only and cannot be completed virtually. 

Our office does not contract with any insurance companies or bill insurance companies for any services. A Superbill will be provided upon request that can be submitted for insurance reimbursement.
