Pre-Operative Visit

Congratulations, your surgery is right around the corner!

Pre-Operative Appointment/Lab Work:

You will be scheduled to come into our office within 3 weeks prior to surgery for your pre-operative appointment. Please be on time for your appointment. Failure to be on time can result in longer waiting times to be seen and possible rescheduling. Appointment times are M-F from 8-11am and 1-2pm. Please expect to be at this appointment for approximately 1 hour.  During this time you will:

  1. Financial/Consents meet with your designated manager to sign consents, go over final details and make all final financial payments.
  2. All lab work will be done during this time. Lab work will be done while you are fasting (nothing to eat or drink past midnight 12:00am) unless indicated. Based on your results, you may be required to get surgical clearance from your specialist or PCP. This will be your financial responsibility to get your clearance. Failure to get clearance can result in rescheduling your surgery. Additional fees may apply. Please bring a list of all your medications you are taking.
  3. Prescriptions will be given during your preoperative appointment. Loss of prescription will result in a $5 fee per prescription. Medications are not included in your price quote.
  4. Photographs will be taken we require all our patients to have before photographs. This is for your medical records only. Please be prepared to be completely nude (depending on surgery) for photographs. No exceptions.

You will not meet with Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips on this day unless proper arrangements have been made. You will meet with your surgeon on the day of the surgery to go over your surgery. You can make a separate appointment “Talk before surgery” with Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips prior to surgery at no additional cost.
