First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. 

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 have medical or dental insurance, bring your card(s) and or proof of insurance. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation.This will need to be determined when appointment is made in order to schedule time accordingly.  A complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.  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 medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

If you have been pre-appointed for a same day surgery please refer to the before anesthesia instructions prior to your appointment in order to prepare appropriately.
