Initial Paperwork for Minor Surgery
Before you even see us we will send you a number of documents and forms that you can complete online and that will save directly in your medical record:
- A Welcome email with a lot of information
- An email with a link for the Application Form
- An email with a link for the Pre-consent Form
- Where requested / appropriate an email with a receipt for any payment
- Coronavirus safety questionnaire
We ask you to complete both forms prior to Minor Surgery. Application Form: Dr Kittel understands what you want doing, has a good idea about your problem and knows your medical history. Pre-consent form: This consists of a number of informative statements. You can either tick “I understand and agree” (statements you dont want to discuss further) or if you are not sure you tick “Please discuss this further” (statements you want to discuss further). Your signature does not mean you agree or are obliged to go ahead with surgery, but it means you have given all statements good consideration.
Consultation for a thorough Minor Surgery Assessment with Diagnosis and Quote
Dr M Kittel will meet you personally for an thorough assessment of your problem and give a diagnosis wherever possible. Appointment times are usually on Fridays between 6pm and 8pm. He will talk you through the options and if there are a number of different ones clearly explain the advantages and disadvantages and guide you while you are free to choose. The final consent form will then be signed in clinic prior to minor surgery.
Following the appointment we will calculate the exact cost and send you an email with a quote within 3 working days. Prices are likely to be very close to the ones in the price guide. Cost will substantially reduce if more than one skin lesion is removed in one session (in minor surgery AND lab fees).
Provided all paperwork is completed before surgery and if you choose to come back we can start with the procedure immediately.
When comparing our quote with other providers, please ensure they include the cost of lab fees into their quote. Treat providers with suspicion that do not offer a laboratory evaluation of your lesion.
