Post-op follow up visit protocol?
Doctor Answers 1
I take care of my patients and make sure they are seen post op so all of their questions and problems can be taken care of. My charge for surgery includes close follow up- if a patient doesn't want to be seen frequently, it is their is their right not to come in, but all of my patients have questions and I like to see them so I can answer them. I also think that the surgeon should be the one to remove the splint and deal with the early post op care.
