The clinic visit
- Before your clinic visit it will be helpful for you to have a good idea of what your aims are and to be clear about the problems you want addressing. Their duration, severity and impact on you are all important factors in working out an individual treatment plan.
- Old photos can sometimes be helpful.
- It is always a good idea to bring a list of your allergies, medical conditions and medications with you and to have taken your usual medications as you would do on a normal day.
- When discussing surgery, I will take you through the risks, benefits and alternatives to treat your condition to make sure that you are totally happy with your decision. I’ll make sure you have some time to cool off before your procedure.
