To schedule an appointment for a consultation, please choose a physician from the list on the right.
If your doctor has referred you for surgery or a procedure at UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital, your doctor’s office will typically schedule a pre-admission appointment for you. To provide you with the highest quality health care, we require all patients undergoing elective procedures with anesthesia to be screened in our pre-admission clinic. This is to prevent any delays or cancellations on the day of surgery and to identify and to optimize your health prior to your procedure.
