When a patient arrives at Hospital Del Prado for surgery, there are a few steps they will go through in the check in process. These steps involve: preoperative tests (labs, EKG, med history, and Physical), a meeting with Dr. Kuri to discuss any questions or concerns, registration into the hospital, and settling into private suites. We understand that the patient has been fasting and will do our best to get the labs drawn as quickly as possible. We recommend that the patient packs a quick snack to tide them over once this is done. Please be patient as the process can change in order, but nonetheless, all steps will be taken.
