We usually show a brief video of the procedure that the patient is interested in. This is followed by a personal discussion with Dr. Bern which usually lasts for 30 minutes. I then show pre and post operative photos of similar patients. We discuss the pros and cons of the procedure the patient is interested in I then examine the patient with my assistant in a private sitting. Financial issues are then discussed by my patient care coordinatort. She provides a quote, brochures and pamphlets. The patient and Dr. Bern always talk at least twice before any surgery.
