Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information prior to your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
If you have medical or dental insurance, please provide this information to our office at least 3 days in advance of your consultation. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please provide a copy of your photo ID and all insurance cards upon check-in.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all appointments.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery.Please have nothing to eat or drink Six hours prior to your surgery. You will also need a designated person to be present during your procedure who is also responsible to receive all post operative instructions, and to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
