New Patient Consultation
Your initial consultation is an important part of your plastic surgery experience. It is an opportunity for you to become familiar with our practice and learn about your desired procedure. At this time, you will work with plastic surgeon Dr. Sanjiv Kayastha to design an aesthetic plan that accomplishes all of your goals.
A Commitment to Patient Education
Dr. Kayastha believes that patient education is an important part of your procedure. This education process will begin at your consultation and continue throughout the entire surgical process.
During your consultation, Dr. Kayastha and our caring and knowledgeable staff will break down information in a manner that is easy for you to understand. We will always explain everything in great detail so that you feel comfortable with your desired procedure. We encourage you to ask us any questions you might have at this time.
An Overview of Your Consultation
The length of your consultation will vary based on your desired procedure and the number of questions you have for Dr. Kayastha and our staff. However, most consultations are generally about an hour long. The majority of that time will be spent speaking with Dr. Kayastha.
When you arrive, you will meet briefly with our patient coordinator to discuss our philosophy of practice and Dr. Kayastha’s protocol. You will then meet with Dr. Kayastha for an examination and an extensive discussion of your desired procedure. Dr. Kayastha will spend as much time as needed to thoroughly explain his recommended treatment course. He will answer any questions you may have in great detail. At the end of your consultation, you will meet briefly again with our patient coordinator to discuss scheduling, costs, and logistics.
Dr. Kayastha will usually have you return for a second visit before the surgery to make sure you are completely comfortable with your treatment course and to finalize your aesthetic plan. If need be, additional visits (at no additional charge) will be arranged to ensure that you will be comfortable with your surgical treatment plan.
