Information for our Patients

Welcome to CV Medical Services. On this page, you will find information on how to schedule your appointment, how to prepare for your surgery, and what to bring to your appointment.

How to schedule an appointment

Pre-Surgery testing is usually conducted in our medical office several days before your surgery. In this case, we will call you to schedule your appointment, which typically lasts 30 minutes. For added patient convenience, and depending on your surgical procedure, some surgeons may approve coordinating our consultation on the day of your surgery. You are also welcome to call our CV Medical Services office at your convenience to schedule an appointment. Scheduling is available weekdays from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Our phone number is 216.765.0358.

Preparing for your surgery

When you need surgery, your physician will determine whether your procedure can be done on an outpatient or inpatient basis. In either case, you may be given an appointment at CV Medical Services for a preoperative assessment and consultation. We help to evaluate and optimize your medical condition prior to surgery. During your appointment at CV Medical Services, our healthcare providers will:

  • Take your medical history

  • Perform a physical exam

  • Conduct pertinent tests ordered by your doctor such as blood tests or an EKG

  • Discuss which medications you should or should not take before your surgery

  • Discuss your planned surgery with your surgeon or anesthesiologist as necessary

 

 

 

What to bring to your appointment

When you come to our office, please be on time and we will do our best to make your visit comfortable and efficient. Please bring the following items:

  • Medicare, Medicaid and/or insurance cards

  • Driver's license or other photo ID

  • Current list of your medications, including the drug name and dose in milligrams, number of pills you take each time, and how many times per day they are taken.

  • A complete list of over-the-counter drugs and supplements that you are taking as some of these medications can have unwarranted side effects which may increase your surgical risk. If convenient, you may bring in the original containers.

  • List of allergies and your medical history. You may want to write this information down before your appointment.
