Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information:
- Your surgical referral slip, and any x-rays or other imaging (if applicable).
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- A copy of the font and back of your medical and dental insurance cards. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all visits.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken any previous imaging (i.e. x-rays, CT scans, MRI, Ultrasound, PET scan) you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. Please be aware that the UMOMSA provider may request that you obtain new imaging depending on image quality or new history and physical examination findings.
Telemedicine visits are available for certain visits. Video visits allow patients to connect face-to-face in real time without leaving their home. Patients can connect with their doctor for a virtual “office visit”, from the comfort of their home or current location with the use of a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Contact our office at 410-706-6195 to discuss if telemedicine is appropriate for your appointment type.
Visits are by Appointment Only. We do not see emergency patients at this office, unless you are a patient of record.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the nature of our practice, Drs. Ord, Caccamese, Warburton, Lubek or Dyalram provides many types of services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Our doctors will spend the amount of time needed with all patients.
Urgent cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
