Virtual Consultations

One of the benefits of Dr. Yates’ out-of-town surgical program is the option for virtual consultations. Patients can go from inquiry to scheduling surgery from the comfort of their own homes. Virtual consultations can include email exchanges, photos, or face-to-face video consultations with Dr. Yates through the secure Symplast Patient App. By taking advantage of virtual consultations, you can have most of your questions answered in advance and arrive for surgery well-prepared.

Scheduling Surgery

After the virtual consultation, scheduling surgery is the next step. Dr. Yates’ office staff can find a surgical date that fits your schedule, and a $500 deposit is required to hold the date. The deposit is refundable if unforeseen complicating factors arise after arrival. Dr. Yates’ staff can provide a basic price quote during the consultation, which may change slightly after an in-person examination.

Pre-Op Appointment

For many out-of-town patients, the pre-op appointment will be their first in-person visit to the office. This requires pre-planning, but the appointment can be arranged the day before or the day of surgery for some patients. Follow Dr. Yates on Facebook and Instagram for up-to-date information that may affect your plans.
