Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. A complex medical history or treatment plan may 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 surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you would like our office to submit any insurance claims please complete the insurance sections on the patient registration.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. If you are scheduled for IV anesthesia, please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult 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 medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist, emergency room or ENT doctor has taken x-rays please request that they forward them to our office. Please pick them up and bring them to our office for your appointment or drop them off ahead of time for review. If additional x-rays are necessary they can be taken at our facility.
