Before you have anesthesia for surgery at City of Hope, your surgeon or doctor will schedule an appointment for you at the Pre-anesthesia Testing Clinic (PATC).
 
The PATC visit gives you an opportunity to ask questions, and it helps our anesthesiologists create the ideal anesthetic plan for you. After your PATC visit, you should know what to expect both in the time leading up to your surgery and during your recovery. Visit Anesthesia to learn more.
