What to Expect

Prior to your first appointment at Phoenix Cardiac Surgery, your surgeon will have already discussed your case with your referring physician. When you meet your surgeon at your first appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions and review any concerns you have.

At this appointment, you’ll work with our scheduling coordinator to schedule your surgery. We’ll also make sure we have all the necessary information to work with your insurance company to obtain any necessary pre-authorization.
If pre-operative testing is needed, that will also be scheduled at this time. More information about the tests your surgeon may order can be found here.

Remember: If you have questions, ASK! Our goal is to make sure you understand your treatment plan and what to expect before, during, and after your surgery.
