First Visit

During your initial appointment we perform a consultation explaining your diagnosis and present treatment options to achieve your desired results. Typically, patients have an initial consultation followed by additional appointment(s) to provide treatment plan selected. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation if anesthesia is not involved and the procedure is minor.

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.).

We look forward to meeting you.
