Mission Statement

Welcome to the PAC! We are located in Naval Medical Center San Diego on the 4th floor of Building one, click HERE for a building map with PAC location. Our goal is to make your preoperative experience pleasant and to ensure a smooth process for your visit. To help you and your family prepare, please review the following important information.

Typical PAC visits include a check in process, an interview with a Health Technician to review medications and collect laboratory studies and perform EKGs (if required) as well as an interview with an Anesthesia provider if needed. Visit times will vary depending on your health history and anesthesia needs as well as on the daily patient load. Mondays typically have the highest patient volume, so higher than usual wait times can be expected.
