First Visit with Consult Same Day Service

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. We have found over the years that most of our patients like the fact that with some minimal planning prior to the first visit to our office surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation! Of course, no patient has to commit to anything prior to meeting us.  Dr Seabold prescribes  that you arrive to our office with nothing to eat or drink for at least 8 hours and a responsible ride to take you home if you decide to address your issues same day as the consult.  We feel as 95%+ of our patients elect to do so.  However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. 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 medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary they can be taken at our facility.
