Prior to your first visit we ask all patients to preregister on the bottom of this website ( online forms – patient registration ) to facilitate your check-in and minimize time in the waiting room.
Your medical history is reviewed, a head and neck examination is performed, anesthesia options are discussed, treatment plan formulated, preoperative instructions given, fees discussed, and surgery scheduled.
After your consultation we will schedule your surgery appointment.
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 dental or medical insurance, bring the necessary cards and any completed forms. 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 at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 8 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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
