Answers to
Common Questions

Be sure to call your primary care physician and ask if you need a referral. Our surgeons will want to communicate your findings to the PCP. Once your care is complete you will be referred back to your PCP’s office.

At your initial consultation the surgeon will review the information from your PCP’s office, including any imaging or lab work.  Your surgeon will then review the plan of care with you.  If surgery is needed, they will complete the paperwork for the schedulers and indicate any further testing needed.  The surgery schedulers will be in contact with in about 4-6 business days to schedule surgery or testing. 

Our surgery schedulers will check your benefits to be sure that your surgeon is in network. They will also check that you have benefits for the procedure as well as gather information regarding your deductible and co-insurance.  Our schedulers will then let you know specific information on coverage and deductibles/co-insurance so you are aware of what you will be responsible for in the overall cost. 

The surgery schedulers will check if your health plan will cover the surgery assistant.  We will also offer information at your initial consultation about the surgery assistant.  Please be sure to read all information that you are provided. We do encourage you to call your insurance company as well to ensure coverage for the surgical assistant. Please note not all surgeries require a surgical assistant.

You and your surgeon will make the determination regarding your need for pain medication after surgery. Many patients do well on over the counter medications such as Tylenol or ibuprofen. The decision is also based on the type of surgery you have had.

All of the surgeons of SSOC have had extensive surgery training during residency, fellowship and in private practice. Feel free to ask your surgeon any questions you would like regarding their training and depth of experience.

Since SSOC is a private practice our patient information does not automatically upload into the SCL, Centura, HCA or Aspen hospital systems. We do have a patient portal for which you will receive login information at your initial office consultation.  The website for the SSOC patient portal is

"The surgeon and the specialist that worked along with the surgeon for my surgery we're very informative and let me know about how the procedure was going to be performed and basically how it would end at the finish line. I do appreciate all the staff that worked with the surgeon and how informative they all were. I would like to thank you all and say that how appreciative I am for all the hard work that you do for all your patients."
