3 EASY STEPS TO BOOK SURGERY
Here the 3 major steps to starting your journey.
Step 1: Submit Health Questionnaire
Filling out the Health Questionnaire will take you roughly ten minutes. Once you complete the form online and submit it, we receive an electronic copy to review. Our surgeon liaison will forward it to the doctor of your choice. You do not need to select a surgeon before starting the form, simply select “No Preference.”
Once the doctor reviews your health history form, they will send an ”Approval” notice to your coordinator, the coordinator will then call, text, or email you the decision of the doctor along with any recommendations the doctor(s) may make.
Step 2: Pick Surgery Date
Once approved, your coordinator will send you an official “Approval” e-mail asking about which date(s) you are interested in for your procedure. After you choose an appointment, the coordinator checks the calendar for the selected doctor’s availability (we can usually accommodate your date of choice unless the time is already booked or the doctor is out of the office).
A deposit is needed to secure your date. The deposit is taken off of the total surgery cost.
Step 3: Make $350 Deposit
So you picked your surgeon, chosen a surgery date, and are ready to book your surgery? Simply pay your deposit safely online. A $350 deposit (non-refundable) is required or you can choose to pay a $500 deposit (partially refundable). Please view our deposit, cancellation, and refund policy for more information.
You will need to complete a consent form and pay for your flights through San Diego International Airport.
