Check In

  • A member of our staff will call you to confirm your surgery time the afternoon before your surgery (or on Friday if your surgery is on Monday) to tell you what time to arrive at the hospital.
  • At Buffalo General Medical Center, surgery patients are greeted by a concierge (Michael) in a tuxedo who provides a free newspaper for family, important updates about your surgery, personal escort to the ambulatory surgery unit and answers to many of your questions -- all with a friendly smile!
  • Check your guidebook for details on what to bring, where to go, and what to expect.
