Pre-Admission Testing

In order to offer the best surgical care possible, the Richmond University Medical Center team performs a thorough evaluation of every patient. This can include allergy information, current medications, and family medical history. In some cases, blood tests and x-rays may also be performed. Patients should also be prepared to provide their insurance information to our staff.
