CEI adds preoperative and wellness clinic to make surgery process easier for patients
The Cincinnati Eye Institute is pleased to announce Christina Wilson, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, has joined the practice to offer patients a convenient option for a preoperative history and physical exam. She will begin seeing patients in mid-August.
Wilson, a nurse practitioner, will see CEI patients for same-day or future appointments if they are unable to schedule a preoperative physical with their primary care doctor within the 30 days needed before surgery. Patients can schedule their appointment through the CEI surgery scheduler or by calling 513-984-5133.
“The mandatory preoperative exam within a month of surgery has been a barrier to many patients whose primary care physician is booked, or they don’t regularly see a family doctor,” said Todd Albertz, VP of Surgical and Specialty Services at CEI.
Wilson is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She graduated from Xavier University’s Family Nurse Practitioner program and has worked in a variety of hospital settings, including preoperative and postoperative surgical areas.
