Patients Traveling to Newport Beach
We have many patients who travel both nationally and internationally to have their surgery performed by Dr. Sadati in Newport Beach. We understand the need to accommodate these patients and make their experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Thanks to the internet, this process has become much easier in recent years. Initial consultations can be done before you travel, making it possible to compress the number of visits prior to surgery. Below you will find an outline of how this process works to make your visit to Newport Beach as comfortable as possible.
- Step One: You may contact our office either by phone or email to set up your initial consultation. Our Patient Coordinator will ask that you send photos to our office along with other pertinent information for Dr Sadati’s review. As a general guide, try to imitate the photos we have on our website to maximize the information they convey. Once Dr Sadati has had a chance to review these materials, our Patient Coordinator will contact you to set up a phone consultation or Skype Consultation with Dr. Sadati. When the consultation is complete, she will contact you again to review pricing, payment options, and scheduling if you so desire.
- Step Two: When you are ready to schedule your surgery, you will contact our Patient Coordinator to discuss availability. We will make every effort to schedule your pre-operative visit one or two days before your surgery in an effort to shorten the length of your stay in the area. The length of stay will be dependent upon the surgery you desire. Our Patient Coordinator will review the particulars of your case as well as pre-operative instructions at that time. You will also receive a package outlining area information to assist you in planning your stay in Newport Beach.
- Step Three: You will need to have someone drive you to surgery, pick you up, and stay with you for 24 hours after surgery (there are a few operations that necessitate someone stay with you for 3 or 4 days). If this is not possible, please let our Patient Coordinator know and she can arrange for overnight nursing services. You will also need someone to drive you to our Newport Beach office for each of your post-operative visits for as long as you are taking medication that may cause drowsiness. Taxi services are allowable after the first 24 hours. Please visit our Concierge Service for more information.
- Step Four: Keeping in touch with you is extremely important to us as your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. We want to see you whenever you visit Newport Beach, but we understand how difficult this can be for the out of town patient. We are happy to individualize your post-operative visits. Some of our international patients email photos. Always contact our office with any questions you may have.
Important Note: Dr Sadati may request medical records, tests, or medical clearance from your physician prior to your surgery. If any of these items are requested, they must be received by our office 2 full weeks prior to your surgery date. Your safety is always our top priority.
