Bryant Cosmetic Surgery continues to increase the efficiency for patients having procedures performed in their office. Two years ago Dr. Bryant (pictured above) began to eliminate the need for an initial patient consultation for patients with a physician referral, coming into the office for a local procedure. Many patients were taking time from their work to come into the office, so eliminating one extra appointment was appreciated. Since most referring physicians have adequate experience to recognize the scope of procedures that Dr. Bryant can perform in his office with local anesthesia, it became unnecessary to have the patient come in for an initial consultation, only to have to return another day to have the procedure performed.
This process has been so successful that Bryant Cosmetic Surgery now offers it to all patients for minor skin procedures. Some of the more common procedures are treatment of skin cancers or removal of moles. This practice even includes frozen section removal of basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. In the rare circumstance that the procedure warrants general anesthesia, at the hospital, this will be recognized at the appointment, and the procedure will simply be rescheduled at another time at the hospital.
The benefits are good for both Dr. Bryant and the patient. The office is able to more efficiently schedule patient appointments. The patient avoids having to take time for an extra appointment, and the charge for an initial appointment. With current high deductible policies, the out-of-pocket savings are appreciated. Out-of-town patients particularly appreciate the reduced number of trips. Often, the follow-up visit for suture removal can be preformed by their local physician.
Bryant Cosmetic Surgery focuses on trying to improve efficiency and lower costs for the patient, while maintaining a high level of private, personal care. Dr. Bryant offers a limited range of procedures in order to take full benefit of his experience and maximize excellence. In both 2010 and 2011, Dr. Bryant received the Patients’ Choice Award as a result of his patient’s comments on physician ratings web sites.
