Your initial appointment with Dr. Gonzalez or Dr. Carr will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 19 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
For your convenience, a preoperative consultation and physical examination is available for same day surgery patients undergoing IV anesthesia. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
For your convenience, we have provided new patient forms that you can download and complete prior to your appointment at Gonzalez & Carr Oral Facial Surgery.
If your dentist or physician has taken radiographs (x-rays), CT scan, or an MRI, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them with you to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
