Once you have scheduled surgery through Princeton Medical Group OBGYN, you will be asked to make an appointment at Princeton Medical Center’s outpatient lab for preadmission testing blood work.
Depending on age and / or medical problems, your physician may also ask for you to get “medical clearance” from your Primary Care Provider or an “anesthesia consult.” You may also need a preadmission
EKG or imaging procedure.
You will be specifically instructed to do this if necessary.
Making an Appointment
The first step to pre-admission testing (PAT) is making your appointment. Please call Preadmission Testing directly at 609-853-7360 to schedule an appointment at one of PMC’s outpatient labs.
Please make your PAT appointment as soon as possible after your surgery date is established. You should schedule your appointment to occur no more than 30 days prior to your surgery date. Princeton Medical Group’s surgery scheduler will fax your lab requisition directly to the outpatient lab.
Please allow one to two hours to complete pre-admission testing. The amount of time you spend in PAT will vary based on the number of tests you are to receive.
