Appointment Checklist

Home / Patient Info / CWC Surgical Institute / Appointment Checklist

Our OB/GYN specialists offer consultations prior to any surgical procedure.”

This is an opportunity to discuss any questions about the procedure in greater detail. Some questions to ask are as follows:

  • What type of procedure is being done?
  • What is going to happen during the procedure?
  • How long will the surgery take?
  • Will anesthesia be administered?
  • How will pain be treated after surgery?
  • When can daily activities be resumed?
  • What are the side effects, complications, and risks of the surgery?
  • Are there any pamphlets or materials that explain the procedure?

Before the appointment, begin thinking about questions and write them down in a notebook. Bring the notebook to the consultation and write down important information at this time.

Asking detailed questions during the consultation will help ease any fears or uncertainties regarding the procedure.
