What are you hoping to leave with? Do you want to leave with information? Do you want to leave with a solid treatment plan? Do you want to begin treatment that day?

Somewhere ... I'll have to go find it, there is a list of questions to be sure to ask your doctor and Corrine wrote it, so it's a good one. I'll go find it and come back and edit this.

Edit: here it is ... if you start here, it might get you thinking about the questions you need to ask!

Here is how our appt. went. The nurse took us back and took some pictures of my daughter's H. Then asked us some questions, etc. Then Dr. Waner and 2 other docs (he seemed to be training them?) came in. He examined our daughter and basically told us our options right there.

I had spoken to him on the phone prior to our appt, so I already knew what our main options would be. We knew we would opt for surgery so we scheduled it that day. I must say he is VERY nice and only suggested what would be appropriate for our daughter, etc. I left feeling very good about everything, etc. He was also very good post op, had us calling his cell phone, etc. Loved him!

Let me know if you have other questions!
