Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed as the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
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 the necessary identification cards. This will save time and allow us to 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 and also day of procedure.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink six 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 any joints that have ever been replaced, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking 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. They can send them to our email address [email protected] or to our physical address, 2501 Palmer Highway, Suite 105, Texas City, TX 77590. If there is not enough time to email or mail them, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
