When scheduling a cosmetic consultation, we do require a $75 non-refundable deposit for appointments with Dr. Koltz and $150 non-refundable deposit for Dr. Barone in order to reserve your appointment time. This is most efficiently paid by credit card, but we will work with you if you prefer another payment method. This deposit ensures that valuable consultation time is available to those who are truly committed to learning about their aesthetic options and will be applied to your choice of surgical procedure or aesthetic service. In order to efficiently accommodate all of our patients’ needs, we request at least 24-hours’ notice in the event you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. This gives us adequate time to reschedule patients appropriately and avoid disruption in patient care.
What to Expect During Your Visit
We believe that patient education is a very important part of the decision-making process, and our consultation visits tend to be very informative and comprehensive. Please expect to spend 1-2 hours with us for your initial consultation. During your appointment, you will meet our Patient Coordinator Sandy who will introduce you to the practice and will also discuss your goals. You will then meet with one of our nurses who will review your health history information and then begin discussing possible procedure options with you. Dr. Barone will then meet with you and discuss specific recommendations to meet your goals after his examination. We will take photos at your consultation visit.
Facial Rejuvenation Considerations
If you are consulting with Dr. Barone for facial concerns, please consider that we may need to remove your makeup if we are taking facial photos or Vectra Imaging. We carry the mineral cosmetic brands Jane Iredale and Colorescience if you wish to reapply makeup after your visit. One of our makeup artists would be happy to select the best products for your skin. We may also spend a considerable amount of time discussing your skin care, as we know that quality skin care is essential for skin health and will provide you with an optimal post-procedure result and help you to maintain those results for years to come.
