Pre-registration assures that you have completed all necessary pre-tests
in advance, so when you arrive on the day of your procedure, you can check
in quickly and smoothly.
Where To Pre-Register
For your convenience, you may pre-register by telephone 310-517-4754 or
in person at the pre-registration office located on the first floor of
the Lundquist Tower.
Pre-registration office hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM.
The entire pre-registration process will require between 30 minutes to
one hour to complete, depending on what pre-tests you need.
Patients are encouraged to call pre-registration at 310-517-4754 and pre-testing
at 310-784-4887 a week prior to scheduled surgery in order to complete
and verify demographic and medical information. The pre-testing nurse
is instrumental in confirming the completion of the pre-surgical process
including determining if a face to face visit is required for additional testing.
The pre-registration process consists of two steps:
- Pre-registration: Answering questions necessary to complete paperwork associated
with your visit to the hospital
- Pre-testing: Completing any laboratory tests, X-rays, or other health screenings
needed before your scheduled procedure.
How Soon Should I Pre-Register?
You can pre-register as soon as an appointment has been scheduled with
the hospital (but no later than the day before your appointment). Your
physician may do this for you or instruct you to schedule an appointment
directly. If you are unsure whether an appointment has been scheduled
for you, call your physician's office or the pre-registration representative
However, if pre-testing is required, you will need to visit the hospital
and pre-register at that time.
What Documents or Information Do I Need To Pre-Register?
To pre-register, please bring the following documents:
- Any forms or handouts given to you at the doctor's office, including
physician orders and test results
- All insurance cards, certifications and claim forms
- Special forms of identification, such as driver's license, employee
I.D., and ADVANTAGE program I.D.
How Do I Register for a Return Visit?
If you are scheduled to return for ongoing treatment for the same condition,
please let us know at the time of pre-registration. We will indicate this
on your account; then, after your first visit, you may report directly
to the department where you are receiving service.
