Out of Town

Have your consultation with Dr. Alexander in the privacy of your home.

This section was designed to allow our out of town patients to share information with Dr. Alexander in the comfort and privacy of their own home, and to provide them with detailed information about their procedure before flying to South Florida for surgery.

Simply complete the steps below:

Step 1: Virtual Consultation

Please fill out our Virtual Consultation form.

Make sure to add your photos and to include any medications you are currently taking include over-the-counter and vitamins.


Step 2: Phone Consultation

Once Dr. Alexander has received and reviewed your completed Virtual Consultation form and photos, our Patient Coordinator will be contacting you via e-mail with price quotes, information and to set up a phone consultation.


Step 3: Scheduling Surgery

The next step will be to schedule your surgery date and in-office consultation with Dr. Alexander.


Step 4: Deposit and Payments

Scheduling your surgery requires an initial non-refundable deposit of $300, which could be made by phone with a credit card (under the patient’s name). Remaining balances are required to be paid in full at least 3 business days prior to your surgery date. We do not accept payments on the day of surgery. This is due to the fact that the surgery is performed in the hospital/outpatient surgical facility.

* Please note we are unable to accept checks.


Step 5: Pre-Operative Assessment and Medical Clearance

Following is the list of the necessary pre-operative tests, which can be done by your primary physician or any lab in your area. If you would prefer to have your pre-operative test done here in the hospital, you would need to arrive to South Florida at least 8 days prior to surgery date.

The following pre-operative tests need to be completed and received no later than 10 days prior to surgery.

• CBC • Chem 7 • PT/PTT • EKG

*If a special Medical Clearance is found necessary prior to surgery, you will be referred to another physician who will bill you separately and the surgery date may be subject to change pending Medical Clearance.


Step 6: Arriving to Florida

Dr. Alexander requires ALL of out of town patients arrive AT LEAST one to two days prior surgery date for their in-person consultation.
