The Consultation Appointment
The initial consultation is probably the most important part of the entire process of undergoing cosmetic surgery: your first opportunity to see the facility, meet the staff and discuss your needs with Dr. Fisher who personally performs all consultations. The initial impressions you form meeting the doctor will determine whether or not you feel comfortable with both the suggested procedures and Dr. Fisher, and consequently, whether you will pursue it further. Not wanting finances to come in the way of this first encounter, we do not charge for our consultations.
We understand just how difficult and embarrassing it is for many people to solicit a cosmetic procedure, just as we are well aware that many who see us are confused about what is the right course of action for them. Bombarded as we all are with conflicting information about cosmetic surgery from family, friends, and the media, the consultation is the time when Dr. Fisher can sort out just what will help you achieve your specific goals.
To make the consultation as beneficial to you as possible, we have several suggestions: When you make your appointment, allow enough time for Dr. Fisher to properly assess your needs and answer any questions you may have. By all means, ask all the questions you want. Feel free to bring a friend, spouse, or other member of your family with you to the consultation. Upon arriving in our office for the first time, fill out the health questionnaire given to you as completely as you can. Try to put aside any anxiety, embarrassment, or confusion you may have and relax. We do this everyday and this is all we do. Finally, if you haven’t received all the information you need at the time of your initial consultation, schedule a second one, again at no charge.
At the end of the consultation, Dr. Fisher will give you a written quotation of the surgical fees for any procedures he feels are appropriate for you. After the consultation, if you are interested in discussing financing, or in availability of surgical times, one of our staff will be glad to go over this information with you. In our office, you will never be pressured to book a surgery. Quite the contrary, we want you to be entirely happy with your decision, therefore we encourage to take your time, think about it carefully, and discuss it with others you trust before deciding.
If you decide you want to go ahead with a surgery performed by Dr. Fisher, give our office a call at 623 876 9494 and our staff will help you book the surgery itself and the required pre operative clearance. At the time of the pre operative clearance, we take a thorough medical history, do a brief physical exam, measure you for any garments that are necessary, take appropriate blood tests, do an ECG if you are over 50 years old, review the anticipated surgery in detail, the informed consents, prescriptions, and pre and post operative written instructions. (The cost for this examination including the blood tests and ECG are included in the surgical fee. You will be informed if there is an extra charge for postoperative garments.)
