POLICIES

Cosmetic visits and procedures are not covered under insurance. An appointment fee is due at the time of check in. If patients believe a procedure should be covered by insurance, please provide a referall stating your procedure is medically necessary at the time of your appointment. Patients are expected to arrive to scheduled appointments on time. If patients are more than 20 minutes late, the patient will need to reschedule the appointment for a later date. All appointment fees are non-refundable. For more information and pricing, please contact the cosmetic coordinator at 773-795-0333.

Patients must pay the professional fee portion of the surgical procedure in order to book a surgical date. Surgeon professional fees must be paid in full 14 days before the surgery date. The patient is responsible for paying the surgical center and anesthesia fees at time of surgery. Patients are expected to follow pre-surgical and post-surgical instructions. Any surgical procedure rescheduled by the patient less than 14 days prior to surgery date or as a result of patient non-compliance will incur a rescheduling fee. This does not include any fee that may be charged by the surgical facility or by anesthesia. All fees must be paid prior to confirming any new surgical date.

Payment for non-surgical services is expected at the time of service. Any patient appointments canceled by the physician or UCM will be rescheduled without any additional fee. Patients will be given 48-hours notice prior to rescheduling.
