Late for Surgery

Once every few years, a patient will be late for their scheduled surgery. Patients who show up late for surgery, will be charged $50 for every 15 minutes late. A patient who is more than 3 hours late for a scheduled procedure will need to be rescheduled.

Rarely, patients come unprepared for surgery. If a patient is not ready for surgery due to a medical condition (flu, fever, etc.) Dr. Katsaros will examine the patient and determine if the patient is medically cleared for surgery or not. If Dr. Katsaros decides that the patient is too sick for surgery, the patient will be rescheduled, at no charge to the patient.

However, if the patient comes unprepared for the surgery (such as having eaten before surgery), the surgery will need to be re-scheduled and the patient will lose their $500 deposit.
