Consultation is by appointment only. The consultation is the time for you and Dr. Gilbert to discuss your concerns in detail, the surgical solution, any alternative treatments, expected outcomes, costs, pre- and post-operative instructions, and possible risks and complications. Friends or family members may be present if you so desire. All questions will be answered. We want you to have a thorough understanding of the proposed surgery.

The consultation fee is $100, payable at the time of the visit. Your consulation fee is applicable to the surgical fee.

Scheduling may be done at the time of the consultation or at a later date if you prefer. There may be a second visit required, at no additional charge, for your history and physical and the signing of the surgical consent form. Photographs will be taken at one of the visits.

Your medical record is strictly private. No information will be shared or provided without your written permission.

Surgical Facilities

All surgical procedures are performed either in a hospital operating room or at a certified surgical facility. You will find the staff at each site to be caring, cheerful and competent.
We are affiliated with the following hospitals:

Payment/Insurance

We will bill for any surgery that is covered by insurance. Please have your insurance information available at the time of your first visit. If you are a member of a managed health care plan, please have the appropriate referrals in place from your primary care provider. We cannot see managed care patients unless there is a valid referral. You are responsible for any co-payments, deductibles, or co-insurance payments.

Cosmetic procedures are seldom covered by health insurance. The exact cost of any specific procedure or combination of procedures will be quoted by Dr. Gilbert at the time of your consultation. Prices are also available by phone. There may be additional charges for any required pre-operative testing or pathological services (tissue examination). As is customary, fees for cosmetic surgery are to be paid in full in advance.

Payment for surgical procedures may be made with cash or checks. We do not accept credit or debit cards in payment for surgical procedures.

Our office purchases an insurance policy for you to cover any unexpected complications of cosmetic surgery that might require additional hospital care through CosmetAssure.
