Prior to any scheduled appointments, Dr. Yurigan's staff will contact all patients (or parents) to get any and all information needed regarding medical conditions that can affect his treatment. The doctor will then review your medical information and contact any physicians, as needed, about upcoming treatment, and then contact you to discuss what will happen before, during, and after treatment.
Most patients will view their surgical procedures to be relatively short and painless, without the sights and sounds of a traditional 'hospital setting.'
