Before Surgery

If you’re about to have a surgery done by one of our doctors, here are some things you should know:

calendarThe DATE and TIME of your surgery

  • This depends on a couple of things:
    • When your insurance approves it
    • When the hospital has an open time slot

    • In the end, the hospital has the final say of when your surgery takes place

  • We can not say this enough: everyone’s insurance is different

  • However, you will probably still need to pay a portion of the bill
    • We will ask for this payment up front
    • Because it is just an estimate though, you may get a refund for part of the amount after your surgery processes the claim
