From the moment you walk through our doors, we want you to feel comfortable, confident, and empowered to ask questions.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE
There is convenient parking in front of the building, and our offices are on the second floor. You will be warmly greeted by one of our receptionists upon your arrival. If you’ve already filled out our new-patient forms, a nurse will come to escort you to an examination room. YOUR
The consultation is an important part of the overall process. Dr. Cannova asks questions to learn about your goals and to get a sense of your expectations. Part of his job is to provide a realistic assessment of what can be accomplished. He will also ask about your medical historyand get a sense of why you are considering a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure. PHYSICAL
Depending on the procedure, your doctor may leave the exam room while you change into an exam gown. A complete physical exam helps Dr. Cannova create a detailed plan. He will evaluate things such as skin tone and elasticity, facial structure, or body proportions.Measurements are also taken, along with photos, to document your specific physical characteristics and help him prepare for your operation. It’s also possible Dr. Cannova may recommend a different procedure based on the physical exam, as well as the possibility of combining procedures to get the results you want.
AFTER THE CONSULTATION
Once the exam is completed, you will be escorted to the patient care coordinator’s office. That’s where you can browse before and after photos of other patients and get detailed instructions to follow both before and after your operation. Before you leave, our patient coordinator will quote a specific price for your cosmetic procedure and schedule the surgery. Reconstructive procedures may need to be predetermined with your insurance provider.
