Before proceeding, please review the following:
Please do not register for a new potential patient case review if-
- you are an established CEC patient (from any year) in need of assistance; instead, please call us at 770-913-0001
- you have, or intend to schedule, an in-office appointment
This form is only for new prospective patients who are seeking our free case evaluation and phone review. Thank you so much!
-Individuals wishing to be reviewed and speak with one of our surgeons by phone must register using the form below. Once received, a packet of step by step instructions will be sent to the registrant at the email address they provide, within 24-48 hours on average. If you receive an email from one of our surgeons but not your packet of instructions, that means the e-packet went to spam or was otherwise not delivered by your email provider. Please check and notify us accordingly if you still did not receive it by sending a message to Heather@CenterForEndo.com. If we are unable to connect by email after a number of tries, your packet will be mailed to the postal address on the registration. The packet will outline, in detail, what specific materials are required for your review (select medical records, CEC forms, narrative, insurance if applicable, etc.). Due to the sheer number of case reviews we conduct annually, we ask that only patients who are considering care with us in the near future register and send their files for review. We will be delighted to evaluate your case and plan surgery with you closer to your chosen date in the future, if you are not seeking surgery with us in the coming months. Thank you for understanding.
-Once the patient’s package is assembled and ready to ship, it must be mailed to the address in the instructions they received. We cannot accept faxed or emailed records except in very specific circumstances; please discuss this with Arielle or Heather on a personal basis. Please note that incomplete materials could delay review of your file. Thank you for understanding.
-Once the package is received in the CEC offices, it is given to the reviewing surgeon for evaluation. The surgeon will call the patient directly to discuss. Please understand that we cannot process any case file reviews on an 'urgent' basis. You can expect the surgeon’s review process to take generally between 6-12 days from the time the records are received to the time you receive their phone call. We do not schedule calls, and we cannot advise in advance when the reviewing physician will be calling. You may wish to keep questions handy to review when the surgeon calls.
-After speaking with the reviewing surgeon, if the patient is a surgical candidate, their file will then be returned to our team for insurance check, coordination of the case, etc. as outlined in the email the patient received at the time of registration. The patient will then be contacted by our Surgical Coordinator once she has all the details at hand to discuss and help the patient plan their potential surgical date with us.
Thank you for helping us to help you!
Please also note the following important details:
Please read our guidelines regarding high BMI and other surgical risk factors which may influence our ability to consider your surgical candidacy before registering. For the reasons outlined therein, we are unable to accept surgical candidates with BMI above 45. If you do not know your BMI, you can calculate it online for free here. We also encourage our visitors to read our FAQs as well.
We are an out of network provider for all insurance. You can learn about how we work with insurance carriers before registering here. We cannot determine costs of specific cases prior to review.
As a reminder, please do not complete this form if you have ever been a CEC patient or would like to schedule an office consult. The following is for new case phone reviews only. If you are a CEC patient from any year, or a new patient wishing to schedule an appointment, please call us at 770-913-0001 and we will be delighted to assist you with your needs.
Thank you for taking the time to read through all of this important information. We hope to be able to have the privilege of assisting you soon!
