STEP 1: VIRTUAL CONSULTATION
Dr. Breitbart provides in-person consultations at both his Long Island and Manhattan offices. In addition, if patients, especially those traveling from a long distance, prefer a preliminary virtual consultation, the following steps can be taken.
STEP 2: PHONE/VIDEO CHAT
Upon completing the Virtual Consultation, Dr. Breitbart's staff will contact you to schedule either a telephone appointment or live Video Chat session via Skype or Facetime to review your Virtual Consultation with Dr. Breitbart.
STEP 3: PRE-OP VISIT
Dr. Breitbart does require a face-to-face visit with his patients prior to conducting surgery in order to check their physical health, medical history, to determine if you are a proper candidate for surgery, and to discuss the surgery in detail.
Dr. Breitbart's staff will help you determine how long you need to stay after surgery for a healthy recovery so that you can best plan your trip. In general, patients can stay anywhere from five to fourteen days. The staff will also educate you about the recovery process and healing, so you know what to expect before you get here.
