What to expect when you come in for your consultation

Your first appointment with a surgeon is always filled with uncertainties like what should I bring, how do I get there how early should is show up… We are going to answer as many of your questions and hopefully more with this post.

If you are having a cosmetic consultation…

If your appointment is cosmetic you should have the following on the day of your consult:

  • A government issued Identification Card (ie: Drivers License, State ID, Military ID or Pass Post)
  • List of any and all medications you are currently taking (ie: proscribed, over the counter, or herbal)
  • Arrive about 15 minutes early to the appointment so that you can fill out paper work
  • Have the consultation fee ready when you finish filling out the paper work (ie: Cash, Credit Card, or Check)

After you have finished the paper work the medical assistant will call you back to the exam room at that time she will ask you a few basic questions and get height and weight on you. You then will watch a video on the procedure that you are interested in doing, after the video the doctor will come in the room and discuss your procedure. At that time he will answer any and every question you may have no matter how small you might think it is. The doctor will then give you a gown to change in to and leave the room. When he returns he will be with his medical assistant at that time the doctor will do your exam take measurements and before photos of you, while discussing what your options are and his opinion on what might be best course of action for the results you are looking for.

If you are coming in for a non-cosmetic consultation…

If your appointment is for a non-cosmetic consultation you should have the following on the day of your appointment:

  •  A government issued Identification Card (ie: Drivers License, State ID, Military ID or Pass Post)
  • Current Insurance Card
  • List of any and all medications you are currently taking (ie: proscribed, over the counter, or herbal)
  • Arrive about 15 minutes early to the appointment so that you can fill out paper work
  • Have the consultation fee ready when you finish filling out the paper work (ie: Cash, Credit Card, or Check)

Whan you set your appointment the receptionist will ask you for your insurance information so that it can be verified before you come in for you appointment, after you fill out your paperwork is complete your co-pay is due if you have one. Then you will be called back by the doctors medical assistant at that time she will take weight and height on you be sure you have a list of your medications that you currently take including the name dosage and the reason you are taking the medication, the medical assistant will enter it into your chart. After that the doctor then will do your exam and give you his opinion on what course of action might be in your best interest.
