Depends , where: In USA for elective surgery pre OP anesthesia evaluation for surgery is done same day to up to a wk before surgery as lab data is available , Pre OP medical clearance with in a month. In USA Patient has the choice and you pay for it ( dearly ) In UK you have to go by the book speak to your doctor when is going to be your turn in the big line ( remember you don't pay anything from pocket )
