Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Preoperative anesthesia and surgery instructions will be provided during your consultation appointment.
