Medical tourism – setting up the visit
Q: Do you treat patients from out-of-town?
A: Flying to Phoenix for surgery is not only feasible, but it is becoming routine in my practice. I have established relationships with local hotels to make this easier. Once I accept you as a patient, our office will contact you regarding all of the necessary pre-operative steps. This will involve a visit to your primary care physician to “clear” you for this surgery (this is essential to ensure that your trip to Phoenix is not wasted). Once you are “cleared” by your local physician, our office will work with you to schedule a surgical and visit date.
