About Your Visit
Preparation for your appointment
When you arrive for your first visit, you will be greeted by our friendly office staff who will ensure that the proper registration information is collected for your treatment. During your initial appointment, Our surgeon will perform an initial consultation and comprehensive examination, explaining your diagnosis and outlining any treatment recommendations and options. We will help you determine the treatment plan that you feel comfortable with and choose the best option for anesthesia or sedation during the procedure.
In some circumstances, surgery can be done 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 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 you will be undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery, a pre-operative consultation and physical examination is required prior to your treatment. On the day of treatment, you will need to arrange for an adult with a valid drivers license to drive you to the office and home following the procedure. Please do not eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery if you are having intravenous anesthesia.
