Coming from out of town? Here is what to do:
To accommodate our out of town patients we offer a virtual consultation prior to surgery. Below you will find information that describes the typical process leading to your surgery day and beyond.
- Step One: Email Your Requests and Photos
- Step Two: Telephone or Skype Consultation
- Step Three: Scheduling Your Surgery
Step One: Email Your Requests and Photos
The first step is to contact us by filling out the form on this page. We will then ask you to submit recent photos that are standardized to match the views found in our before and after gallery for your chosen procedure. This usually consists of front facing view, side views, and 3/4 or oblique views. For body contouring we also require a full view of the back and buttocks. All photos should be taken against a solid background. These photos are kept strictly confidential.Email Your Requests and Photos
Step Two: Telephone or Skype Consultation
Our Patient Coordinator will assist you in setting up a telephone consultation or Skype consultation with Dr. Naidu at a mutually convenient time. During the phone or Skype consultation you will be able to discuss your areas of concern. At this time, you will be provided with an assessment and preliminary plan of treatment. Our Patient Coordinator will email you a surgery cost estimate following this call. Our Telephone or Skype consultation fee is $200 and will be credited towards the cost of your surgery.
Step Three: Scheduling Your Surgery
Once you have decided to proceed with surgery, our Patient Coordinator will schedule your initial consultation visit, surgery date, and post-operative visits. We will send you a pre-operative packet which contains pre-operative instructions and procedure consents. For your safety, Dr. Naidu requires pre-operative lab work and in some cases medical clearance from your primary care physician prior to your surgery. These documents must be read carefully and all instructions followed closely. You must send the completed documents back to us at least 2 weeks prior to your surgery.
Please plan to arrive at least 1 to 2 days prior to your surgery as Dr. Naidu will need to meet with you in person prior to surgery. Arriving early also allows us to obtain any missed laboratory tests if necessary. A non-refundable deposit will be required to book your surgery date.
We will provide you with information about airports, transportation, and hotel information at this time as well.
After Your Surgery
You will need to be seen in the office 1-3 days after surgery. We also ask our patients not to fly for at least 10 days following surgery. We require that our out-of-town patients bring a friend or relative to accompany them to and from surgery. You will need to have a responsible adult remain with you for the first 24 hours after surgery. If necessary, a private duty nurse can also be scheduled to be with you during this period.
