What you should know
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment 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 at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays, CT scans, MRI films
- A list of your current medical prescriptions
- If you have medical insurance, bring the necessary completed forms and your insurance card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If your physician has ordered a previous diagnostic study, you may request to have the films and results forwarded to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to your initial consultation.
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
