Pre-Op Physical Exams
Although Premier Urgent Care encourages patients to obtain their pre-op physical exams with their existing primary care physician, we understand that many patients do not have existing PCPs and may have difficulty obtaining a pre-op exam. In these situations, Premier Urgent Care will offer Pre-Op Physicals only to generally healthy patients or patients with mild diseases that are well controlled. These Pre-Op Physicals are by appointment only. We serve patients from Oxford CT, Newington CT, Naugatuck CT, New Britain CT, Seymour CT, Wethersfield CT, West Hartford CT, and Waterbury CT.
All Pre-Op Physicals are by appointment only.
The cost of a Pre-Op Physical is $169 plus any additional necessary tests (EKG, X-rays, labs) paid at time of visit and is usually not paid through insurance.

What is a pre op visit?
One of the most important physical exam services we offer are preoperative physicals for patients who are scheduled for surgery. Prior to your procedure, most surgeons will require that you undergo a physical examination sometime during the 30 days leading up to the date of your surgery.
What is done at a pre op appointment/visit?
A pre-op exam will consist of taking your physical measurements (height, weight, and blood pressure), a comprehensive review of any and all medications you are currently taking as well as information about dosage amounts and the time of day you take them, a complete review of your family history, personal medical history, and surgical history, and a physical exam. Depending on your surgeon’s requirements, you may also need to complete additional testing including urine or blood testing, x-rays or EKGs. At Premier Urgent Care, we offer state-of-the-art digital x-ray and EKG services as well as onsite laboratory testing, so when you come to us for a preoperative physical, you can rest assured we can provide you with everything you need to ensure you are healthy and prepared enough to undergo your surgical procedure.
What are my financial options for getting a pre op exam?
At Premier Urgent Care, we are committed to providing convenient, affordable and accessible medical care to our patients. We believe that everyone should have access to high quality medical care. Preoperative physicals cost $169 for patients, though there may be additional charges that apply if you require X-ray, EKG, or testing services as part of your exam.
