What are the financial obligations when booking a consultation, a procedure, or a service?
All non-surgical procedures are made at the time of service. For surgical procedures, a 10 percent deposit is required at the time of booking to secure your surgery date and full payment for surgery is required three (3) weeks prior to any scheduled procedure. Payment may be made by cheque, money order, certified cheque, debit (Interact), or e-transfer. Patient financing is also available upon request through Medicard and Credit Medical – our preferred third-party providers.
All surgical, cosmetic injection and skin care treatment recommendations are individualized and may be different for different patients. While ‘ballpark’ figures may be given upon request, actual fees are only provided in person, once a patient has been assessed and the appropriate treatment recommendations are made.
