Our General Surgery Process

Welcome to Dalton Surgical Group! We are glad that you have entrusted us in your care! Please note that surgical procedures will not be performed on the day of your initial consultation.

What to Bring to Your First Appointment

You will be asked to fill out several forms prior to your arrival. Please bring:

  • Completed Forms
  • Health Insurance Information
  • Picture Identification
  • Proof of Address 

You should arrive 15-30 minutes early to fill out paperwork if you have not already entered this information.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

You will be greeted by the receptionist and then taken to an exam room by one of our nurses. You will be seen by your surgeon and a complete physical examination will be performed along with the review of your current medical history. Surgical treatment options will be discussed.

If you are to proceed with surgery, you will then proceed to a meeting with our surgical scheduler. Your insurance information will also be verified so you can be provided with an estimate of your surgical prepayments. Your surgery will then be scheduled prior to leaving the office.
