Out of Town Patients
Our patients visit us in San Diego from all parts of the United States. We are fortunate to live and work in one of the most popular tourist destinations in the U.S. The weather, beaches, and local attractions of San Diego, and the quality care and service that we provide make the decision to visit us in San Diego an easy one. You can fly-in with family or friends, or travel alone. We will make certain that your experience will be outstanding before, during, and after your surgery. Once you decide to undergo surgery with Dr. Park, we will walk you through our process that will ensure that your visit with us is smooth, pleasant, and memorable.
Step One – Initial Contact
- Visit us for a personal consultation. This is ideal for patients who prefer to meet with us before making the decision to schedule surgery.
- Schedule a Virtual Consultation. With this option, patients send digital photos and communicate with us by email or phone to determine if they are good candidates for surgery.
After your assessment, we will provide you with all fees for surgery, time required for postoperative care, and suggestions for local hotels and nursing care, if required.
Step Two – Scheduling Surgery
When you have decided to schedule surgery, our staff will offer available dates for your preoperative appointment and day of surgery. A deposit will be required to secure your date, and the balance for surgery will be due at least 3 weeks prior surgery. During your preoperative appointment you will meet us in person to undergo a physical exam, review details of your surgery, receive pre and post-operative instructions, and also obtain prescriptions for post-op medications.
Step Three – Date of Surgery
The next day your surgery will be performed at North Coast Surgery Center which is located about a block away from our office. In some cases patients can spend the night at the surgery center for an extra fee. Most patient choose to stay in a local hotel attended by family or friends. We do require that your care taker is at least 18 years of age. If you are traveling alone, we can recommend a medical attendant service that will provide a nurse to take care of you for as long as you choose.
Step Four – Recovery
We do ask our patients to stay in the San Diego area for at least 3 to 7 days. In some cases your stay may be less than 3 days. In other cases your stay may be more than 7 days. It all depends on the type and amount of surgery that you are having done. There are numerous hotels to choose from in San Diego. If you’d like to limit the time spent on the road to drive to your appointments, we recommend staying either in Carlsbad or Oceanside. Both have great beaches, local attractions, shops, and restaurants to enjoy while you’re visiting us. Hotels in these cities are within an easy drive to our office and the surgery center. If you’re not sure where to stay, we’ll be happy to provide you with recommendations.
