Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Anything that you are told that you do not comprehend must be clarified prior to the surgery. Politely ask your doctor to talk to you in simple terms, and then repeat back to him anything he says so that both of you know you understand it all. Price and quality don’t always come together. Price should not be your deciding factor as you are looking for a surgeon. Affordable options may indicate true value, or they may be indicative of dangerous scrimping on services. On the other hand, higher pricing may mean a surgeon has the best techniques and equipment, or that he is simply charging too much. You will not be able to know without investigating them beforehand.
