Our approach is to ensure our patients are well informed of their surgical procedure before it takes place. That is why we conduct pre-operative consultations so you can meet the doctor before your scheduled surgery. These consultations allow Dr. Scheetz and Dr. Rekos to thoroughly evaluate your surgical needs and develop a potential treatment plan. We will accommodate a patient who is in need of emergency care without a separate pre-surgical visit.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip from your dentist or physician and any x-rays, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring your medical or dental insurance cards.
- Completed patient registration forms that can be located on and printed from our website.
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.)
PLEASE NOTE: All patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to our office. We may also be able to request them directly from your doctor prior to your appointment. Please let us know if you need this assistance.
Everyone in our practice works hard to stay on schedule to minimize your wait time. Because Drs. Scheetz & Rekos provide surgical services, various factors may lengthen the time required for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience if these circumstances arise.
