The proper analysis of deformities and undesirable conditions can best be evaluated during a consultation. It is at this time for you to express specific concerns, and gives the doctor an opportunity to formulate a treatment plan to help correct this.
We attach a great deal of importance to your consultation, which generally takes an hour. It gives us a chance to meet and to review your specific desires. During this time, we can outline treatment alternatives, discuss expected outcomes, and review risks, complications and costs.
A consultation is especially important as it creates a patient/physician relationship based on trust, experience and expertise. We consider all of our patients as part of our “family”, and therefore the door is always open for future visits. You are encouraged to review our website so that they will be better informed of the desired procedure.
During the consultation, you will meet with Dr. Volshteyn and one of our patient coordinators as well as the rest of our staff.
One of our assistants can assist you with questions regarding your upcoming surgery. They will explain pre-operative instructions. If you need to re-schedule or cancel your surgery, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible.
Dr. Volshteyn takes 24-hour call 7 days a week for his patients following their surgery. All patients have access to Dr. Volsteyn, and they will receive a call the evening following surgery. Patients become part of our family and there is no charge for follow-up visits.
Insurance and Billing:
We work with all different insurance companies, however we are not exclusively contracted with any insurance company. If your plan allows, we will file insurance claims for reconstructive procedures. Please help us process these claims promptly by bringing your insurance information with you on your first visit. Our staff will verify the coverage provided by your health insurance plan before surgery. The patient is responsible for the co-pay, deductible, and co-insurance. The patient may also be responsible for any amount that is not covered by insurance. Remember that your health care policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. It is ultimately the patient’s responsibility to pay for services provided by our office.
