Steps to Follow


Step 1 – Please fill out the Consultation Form. There is no cost in doing this. Keep in mind that photos will be required to complete the consult and help with your evaluation. Our patient care coordinator will inform you what photos are needed and how to securely transfer the photos to us.


Step 2 – You’ll be contacted within one business day in order for us to schedule the virtual consult. Please note that if I deem you are not a candidate for surgery from the information that’s been provided, we will notify you.


Step 3 – We will have your virtual consultation through the use of the secure, HIPAA protected Doxy portal. Our Patient Care Coordinator can help assist you with this platform if needed.


Step 4 – Our Patient Care Coordinator will follow up within one business day from the time of your consultation regarding pricing and scheduling. Once more, please note that if we deem you are not a candidate for surgery from the information that’s been provided, we will notify you.


Step 5 – Pre-operative testing will be done in your hometown, which will include compulsory blood work, urine testing, electrocardiogram (ECG), or any other tests that your surgical team requests.


Step 6 – You should arrive a day prior to your surgery so you can meet the surgeon and our team for a confirmatory exam and to further discuss your surgery. We will be able to provide you with a fine-tuned surgical plan and take the opportunity to address any questions and concerns you may have concerning the procedure.


Step 7 – After your surgery and before you return home, you’ll meet with your surgeon at our office for follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing. Depending on the procedure, the timing and number of follow-ups you will need may vary.


Step 8 – Expect an online or phone follow-up at 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months. Of course, if you’re in the Washington, DC area, we can always arrange for in-person follow up to evaluate your results.

For most surgeries, you will need to be in town for the week. The night of your surgery we provide the option to have a nurse stay with you to make your first night after surgery as comfortable and stress free as possible.  Our patient care coordinators can help you with setting up any of these services.
