Information For Magee Patients

UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital puts you, the patient, first. We believe that an informed patient who knows what to expect from a visit is the best patient.

How to Schedule an Appointment or Test

Before you call to make an appointment, find out if your health insurance plan requires a referral or pre-authorization. If so, your doctor will first need to obtain one from your insurance provider.

To schedule an appointment, call toll-free 1-866-696-2433 (MyMagee). One of our friendly staff will schedule an appointment at a time most convenient for you.

Advance Preparation for an Appointment or Test

Some imaging procedures require advance preparation such as fasting the morning of the procedure or stopping medications that you may be taking. Our staff will notify you of any special instructions when you call to make your appointment. For certain procedures, our staff also will follow up 24 to 48 hours before your procedure to review instructions and answer any questions you may have.

For some tests, a medication is given to make you drowsy. If you will have this type of sedation for your test, you will need to arrange to have someone drive you home. Our staff will let you know if your test will require sedation when you schedule the appointment.
