The PAT appointment should last about an hour and include:
- Review of obstetric history and current medications
- Lab work
- Pre-delivery education
- Pre-admission paperwork
If requested by your OB/GYN, expectant moms can have a consultation with an anesthesiologist if the birth is considered high risk or the OB/GYN thinks it is necessary.
The clinic is located at Wesley Birth Care Suites, 3222 E. Murdock and is open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. or after hours by appointment only. To schedule an appointment call (316) 962 8825.
