Before your arrival
The admission procedure for our establishment has two components: medical and administrative. The medical part is managed by Doctor Stéphanie DELUMEAU. Admission is based on a prescription issued by your GP or by the health establishment (public hospital or private clinic) which requested your examination. Once this prescription is received, we contact your GP or the medical teams requesting your examination to analyse your needs. A quote for reimbursement is sent to your insurance company, or to you if you do not have insurance. Once the estimate has been accepted, the invoice is sent. It must be paid 100% before your arrival. No request for an examination will be accepted without payment in full of the invoice. Payment can be made by bank transfer or PAYPAL. No patient can be treated without full payment of the invoice sent to you or your insurer.
Preparing for your exam
Preparation may sometimes be necessary for certain examinations. Regardless of the examination to be conducted in our establishments, you will receive a PREPARATION MEMO which must be followed. For example, intravenous urography and cystography require an empty bladder. For cystography, a urine cytobacteriological examination must be done within 5 days of the examination and the results must be brought with you on the same day. Fasting for 3 hours prior may be required for other examinations. All the information you need to prepare for your examination will be sent to you before you come to Guadeloupe.
Similarly, for all interventional radiology procedures, a diagnosis and consultation with the specialist will be required upon your arrival in Guadeloupe.
Before any interventional radiology procedure, a diagnosis is made on the spot and a pre-interventional consultation is compulsory. The pre-interventional consultation consists of: 1/ checking that the patient has the correct indication. 2/ looking for any contraindications by asking the patient about possible allergies and taking a blood sample to check for any blood coagulation disorders or any ongoing infectious syndrome. The diagnoses sought by the blood test are : CBC - platelets - prothrombin rate (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP). 3/ If the blood test is carried out in one of our laboratories in Guadeloupe, a period of 72 hours is required between the pre-intervention consultation and the operation.
