There are two scenarios when it comes to our out of town patients. Those that want to come in for their initial consultation and meet Doctor Ralston, then return home and schedule surgery in the future.
In the event you are traveling in for consultation and surgery all in one visit, feel free to call or email questions in advance of your consultation. Photos can even be sent via a secure web site for evaluation by Doctor Ralston. Our office staff have all been working together for over fifteen years, they are very knowledgeable and capable of answering phone and email questions.
Once the decision is made on the appropriate surgery for you, a price quote will be given. The next step would be picking a date for your surgery. Locking in your date requires an initial deposit of $200.00 and can be done over the phone with a credit card. Deposits are non-refundable, but are applied to surgery balance. We do not accept credit cards on the day of surgery, so you will need to make arrangements for your final payment before you arrive. This is due to the fact that we want you to focus on your surgery and not have any possible financial complications at the last minute. There are many different options for payment, such as Visa, Master Card, Discover, cash and cashier’s check. We also participate with three of the Care Credit plans, the 6 month interest free and the 24 and 36 extended monthly payment plans at Care Credits current interest rates.
