One of our checkout specialists will schedule any follow-up appointments needed. They will also make sure all your questions have been addressed before you leave – making you feel confident about your treatment plan.
If the doctor recommends surgery, a surgery coordinator will be your main contact person. They will coordinate with the doctor and the facility where your surgery will be performed and schedule a date for the procedure. They will verify your surgery benefits, obtain any authorizations required, review what you can expect before and after the surgery, and answer any questions you may have.
