Frequently Asked Questions

Why is an office visit required prior to scheduling my procedure?

Before scheduling surgery, our physicians must meet with you to assess your health history and current medical condition. This helps to ensure that you will receive the course of treatment most appropriate for you. The consultation also provides you with an opportunity to ask your physician any questions you may have about your condition or surgery.

When I contact the office, how long must I wait for the next available appointment?

We can typically schedule your appointment within two weeks of your phone call.
