I am a new patient - what do I need to do before I come in for my first appointment?
Prior to your appointment, you will need to be registered with Brigham and Women's Hospital. If you are not already registered, you may do so by calling 866-489-4056 or by going to the Registration Desk near the 45 Francis Street entrance upon your arrival. If you register by phone, you will receive a blue registration card in the mail. If you register on-site, you will receive your blue registration card at that time.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
What should I expect during a surgical consult?
Our surgeons are very approachable and want to help you understand the procedure and options that you are considering. So this is the time for you to ask questions. It is often very helpful for you to write down all of your questions before you meet with the doctor.
What is the difference between a cosmetic consultation and a reconstructive consultation?
A cosmetic consultation is for elective or self-pay procedures (i.e., breast augmentations, tummy tucks, etc.). A reconstructive consultation is for medically necessary procedures and is usually covered by your insurance (see below for information on co-payments).
How much does a cosmetic consultation cost?
How much does a reconstructive consultation cost?
If you have health insurance, your consultation may be covered by your carrier. If your insurance plan requires a referral from your PCP, please make sure that it is in place prior to your office visit. Co-payments, if applicable, are due and payable at the time of service via cash, personal check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover.
Will you provide me with a quote regarding costs?
Yes, the surgeon’s practice assistant will provide you with a quote following your consult with the surgeon.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Not at this time. We require payment in full for all cosmetic/self-pay procedures three weeks prior to your surgery day. We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
Can you help me with my insurance provider?
We are happy to work with you and your insurance provider, but any specific questions regarding coverage should be directed to your insurance company as they set the guidelines for coverage based on your insurance plan.
