We respect your time, but we need about 1-1.5 hours of your time at the initial consultation. This is often a complex operation and you deserve a careful, unrushed evaluation. We are talking about permanently changing your appearance.. If you want to come back for a second consultation, at no charge, we will need about another 30-45 minutes. If you are too busy to spend this amount of time at your evaluation, you may be too busy to have cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Bentkover will ask you what you do not like about your nose, thoroughly examine your nose, photograph you himself, and do some simulated surgical planning with you on the computer. He will answer all of your questions and carefully explain his approach to your nose. He will also diagram those changes to help explain them. Including planning and preparation of his report after you leave, he will spend about 2 hours on your visit the first day. You are paying for his expert analysis and opinion on what should be done to help you achieve your goals.There is a real value to that.
If you do not show up for your appointment, you have wasted a lot of the doctor’s time. Regrettably, that is why we secure your appointment with a credit card number. If you have to cancel, it must be at least 3 working days before the appointment, so that we can fill the time slot. You will be charged for the consultation if you no-show or cancel with less than three days’ notice. Also, under those circumstances, if you wish to rebook, the next consultation will also be booked under the same policy and secured again to your credit card.
