Methodology: The study design is descriptive-analysis carried out for (300) patients, selected by simple, organized random technique. The study members collected the data by a questionnaire contained Likert?s scale with five points. The research used 95% for confidence level, and the P-value was (<0.05). The group of the study received the survey after recovery from anesthesia. The statistical package of social science is used for analysis and demonstrated in frequency and percentage. The program made cross-tabulation and provided P-value. Excel program produced figures and offered tables for some data. The results: The results of the current study released a decline in patient satisfaction, and around 40.3% is the value of net satisfaction with the quality of care in preoperative anesthesia evaluation. Conclusion: The level of quality in the preoperative anesthesia evaluation is significantly low.
