Anesthesia Assessment Center

The Anesthesia Assessment Center (AAC) provides comprehensive pre-anesthesia patient evaluations as well as information and patient education regarding anesthesia services. Pre-anesthetic evaluation includes the identification of any medical problems that need to be addressed prior to surgery, the interpretation of pre-procedure diagnostic tests and labs. We work closely with Internal Medicine Perioperative Assessment Center (IMPAC) to provide medical clearance to our patients that will ensure safe anesthesia delivery. The clinic is staffed by three physicians and three physician assistants. In addition to clinic work, we also conduct anesthesia assessments over the phone for patients who qualify. The AAC can be contacted at 713-792-6133.

Mission

The mission of the Anesthesia Assessment Center (AAC) is to assess and screen all patients for past medical, surgical and anesthetic history prior to arrival for the planned procedure requiring anesthesia services. It provides a place for patients to discuss their upcoming anesthetic and have their questions about the process answered.

Vision 

The AAC will be the premier anesthesia assessment center in the country and be a model for all centers in the U.S. and throughout the world.
