Allegheny General Hospital Visitor Information

Your First Visit

When you come in, our staff will evaluate your wound and general health. They'll also review your medical history. A blood test may be involved. You may also need special tests that give us information about blood flow and oxygen flow in the wound area.

Preparing to Visit AGH

  • Call for an appointment.

  • You may be asked a few questions about your wound and general health.

  • Keep your appointment. It's the first step toward healing your wound. We're dedicated to helping you, but your cooperation is vital.

  • Make a list of any allergies you have and any medications you're currently taking, including aspirin and vitamins.

  • Bring your medical records, and insurance cards and forms.

  • If you have diabetes, bring snack food and medication with you. Your first visit will take several hours.
