The first appointment to any of the doctor you visit to is very important as it is the consultation phase which helps you decide whether you want to stick to the particular doctor for onward treatment and care of not. Same is the case which occurs when you visit to a breast surgeon. Visiting a breast surgeon is something that a lot of people prefer not to due to obvious reasons which is why we have narrowed down some of the things you should be expecting on your consultation visit to a professional surgeon if need be. Let’s find out what are those.
1. Bringing Support Along
We highly recommend people to bring in someone along who can act as a support to you as sometimes there is a lot of information to be processed which cannot be handled alone by many people when visiting a breast surgeon. It is due to this we highly recommend to take along a family member or friend you can trust who will be following and supporting you from the process of consultation till the aftercare of the surgery as well.
2. Medical History
When you go to a breast surgeon Newcastle, you must be prepared with any of the medical history you have undergone or any family medical history that has been ongoing in the family as this is something they require to be asked on a documented paper against which further discussions and steps are taken. So make sure that you have concluded and processed all the details related to medical history of self and family the night before you actually plan on visiting the surgeon.
When you meet the breast surgeon, make sure that you are completely trusting them over their work and profession as they are experienced people who will actually be performing your surgery. You as a patient will be spending most of your time with them and will actually be under their judgement for quite some time, hence, trust is the utmost thing you should be having over them to take things further.
If you want to judge the breast surgeon about their attitude, work and performance, the best way to do is by testimonials from the past patients. The more testimonials a surgeon is able to bring to the table, the more experienced they have been and the more positive outcomes have been generated form the particular surgeon. If there is a chance that the surgeon hardly has any quantity of patients in the past, this could mainly be because they have been cherry picked from the total number of patients they have taken over time.
