Schedule your virtual consultation by following these three easy steps!
Step 1: Request a Virtual Consultation
Requesting a virtual consultation can be done by emailing our patient care coordinator or speaking directly with our patient care coordinator by dialing 225-927-7546, selecting option 1 for appointment desk, then option 1 for the Baton Rouge Location.
If emailing, please let us know the area/areas you would like to address and your contact information.
To secure your virtual consultation, a non-refundable pre-payment of $150 will be collected. Once your surgery is scheduled, this pre-payment will be applied to your final surgery quote. After securing your virtual consultation, our patient care coordinator will email you a set of new patient paperwork for you to complete prior to your consultation. This information will be reviewed by our physicians and kept strictly confidential.
Step 2: The Virtual Consultation
The virtual consultation can be conducted via FaceTime or Google Duo.
The purpose of this consultation is to allow you to discuss your concerns, your goals, and to provide you with an overall more comprehensive understanding of the surgery process.
In doing this, Dr. Perenack and Dr. Doucet will acquire the information they need to understand what you would like to achieve and to determine your candidacy for your selected procedure.
You will then be given a surgical assessment and an overview of your treatment plan. Your surgery coordinator will discuss all the pre- and post-operative requirements, fees, and financing options and ensure that you know what to expect during your surgical journey.
Final assessment and price estimate will be confirmed during your in-person visit prior to your surgery.
Step 3: Schedule Your Surgery
Once your candidacy is confirmed and you decide to proceed with surgery, our surgery coordinator will assist you in scheduling your in-person consultation and pre-operative appointment.
You will need to arrive at least 24 – 48 hours prior to the date of your surgery to ensure there is sufficient time for the in-person evaluation as well as all the necessary pre-operative arrangements.
We understand that scheduling a surgical procedure around work and personal life can be difficult and our team is here to accommodate you.
If you have a preferred surgery date, we suggest calling at least two months in advance to schedule your procedure. Doing this will help ensure you get a date that best coincides with your schedule.
To secure your surgery date, we require a non-refundable deposit of 10% which is deducted from the total surgery fee.
