Please assist us with your initial visit by providing the following information: Please Note: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment. Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern prior to surgery, e.g. artificial heart valves or prosthetic joints (e.g. hips , knees) or other conditions for which your physician recommends antibiotic pre-medication or other special treatment considerations.
The following instructions may be helpful when preparing for your upcoming surgery. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any last minute questions. We can be reached at 212.838.0940 during regular business hours. You should receive your pre/post-operative prescriptions with this instruction sheet. For your convenience, please have them filled prior to your scheduled surgery, unless they have been previously phoned into the pharmacy of your choice. Please bring your filled prescriptions with you to your appointment. It is not usually necessary to stop taking aspirin and non-steroidals (such as Motrin and Advil) prior to your surgery.
