Getting Ready for Your Surgery
(For Longwood Patients)
One Medical Passport is a web-based program that allows you to enter your medical information securely online. Prior to your surgery, you will receive an informational telephone notification. Some patients will also receive an email or additional phone call from our staff depending on your medical history.
In an effort for our team to prepare for all your needs, you may be asked by your surgeon’s office to go online and enter your medical history. It is essential that you complete this as soon as possible.
Please call us at (617) 573-3720 if you encounter any issues with the One Medical Passport program.
At the time of accessing One Medical Passport, you may want to have available:
• Past medical history
• Current medication list
Upon arrival to Mass. Eye and Ear, Longwood, please go to the second floor (level 2 of the parking garage.) From the lobby, follow the signs for the Surgical Center.
If you have a fever or cold the day before scheduled surgery, please contact your surgeon’s office.
