CHICAGO & NORTH SUBURBS
| I look at your first visit to the office as a most important one.
There are special goals that have to be met during this crucial interaction,
and the answers to many questions have to emerge.
What procedure is appropriate for me?
Is this the physician I would like to have?
Can I afford this procedure?
Is this the best time in my life to have it done?
In order to help you address these questions, I will carefully listen
to your interests and will ask you questions to help you and me clarify
the goals you wish to achieve. I will also ask you questions about
your health and examine you. On the basis of this information, I
will formulate a recommendation. If it involves a surgical procedure,
I will discuss in detail the surgical plan, its limitations, the
risks and complications, and the social and work issues that surround
the specific surgical procedure.
You will also have a chance to review the financial aspects of the
surgery and you will be given a written quote of the various costs
(facility, surgeon, anesthesia, implants, etc.). During your visit
you also will have a chance to meet the staff who help me ensure that
my patients receive the best quality care .
If you are
considering some form of financing for your surgical procedure you can

manner. Other financing companies are also available.
