Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Then a surgery appointment will be scheduled. Occasionally, surgery can be done the same day as the consultation but this is uncommon.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
– Your surgical referral slip and any X-rays if applicable
– A list of medications you are presently taking
– A list of drug allergies
If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
A pre-operative consultation and examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Prior to your surgery appointment, please do NOT eat or drink for 8 hours before your appointment. You will also need a responsible individual to drive you home.
