Patients referred to our office by another dermatologist or other physician for Mohs surgery or excision may either schedule an appointment for both a consultation and surgery on the same day OR schedule a preoperative consultation to discuss the operation with the actual procedure being done at a later date. Our scheduling coordinator will need a copy of your biopsy report (usually faxed over by the referring physician) and your current insurance information. If these items are faxed over directly from your referring physician, we will be contacting you, but you can also call our main number in order to schedule.
Upon completion of the procedure and following routine post-operative care, we will follow up with your referring physician in order to ensure the highest level of continuity of care. If you have any post-operative concerns, the expectation is that you call our office so we can best assist you. It is also important that you, as the patient, continue seeing your physician for regular dermatological exams.
