Please call 703-776-2000 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday to schedule your appointment for a telephone assessment interview.

Patient Information Form

Please complete the patient information form for your pre-procedural assessment. It will be helpful to have your completed patient information form available for your telephone interview.

Is Further Medical Clearance Needed?

It is important to schedule a time to speak with a preoperative nurse in the event further medical clearance is needed. Failure to schedule this interview may delay the time or day of surgery.
