Out of Town Patients
Redefining Medical Tourism
I conduct my virtual consultations from my office here in Washington, DC. For each of the following steps, you will have the assistance from my Patient Care Coordinator. We do charge a consultation fee, which the Patient Care Coordinator will discuss with you.
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. My 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, I will notify you.
- Step 3 – We will have your virtual consultation through the use FaceTime or Skype. My Patient Care Coordinator can help assist you with these platforms if needed.
- Step 4 – My 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 I deem you are not a candidate for surgery from the information that’s been provided, I 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 myself and my team for a confirmatory exam and to further discuss your surgery. I’ll 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 me at my office for follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing. Depending on the procedure, the timing and number of follow-ups we’ll need will 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.
