Our goal at LewisGale is to provide you with the best care possible. To help ensure that your procedure goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible, we offer the following guidelines.

Preparing for Your Procedure

You’ll receive specific information about preparing for your procedure when your appointment is scheduled. For the most accurate results from your procedure, it’s important to follow all of the instructions provided. If you did not receive instructions or have questions about them, contact your doctor’s office and ask to speak to a nurse.

In addition,

  • Take time before your upcoming procedure to verify that your procedure is covered by your insurance carrier. If you’re unsure of your specific coverage, call your insurance company in advance.
  • Get information about what to expect before, during and after a specific medical procedure at Radiology.org or at our Web page about the procedure.
  • If you have questions, contact your doctor’s office or call our 24/7 Consult-A-Nurse® team at (877) 242-2362
  • Preregister online to save time at check-in.


On the day of your procedure check in at the registration desk at the appropriate facility 15 to 30 minutes before your appointment. You will be asked to review and sign documents pertinent to your procedure.
