Patient and Procedure Information

The Nurse will go through your medical history, the financial consent and the preparation instructions for your procedure. Dr. Le reviews the pre-operative assessments and thus you will get to meet him and ask him questions. Once the pre-operative assessment is completed, the procedure will be booked for you.
