Welcome to our office. We feel privileged that you have sought us out for consultation.
We specialize exclusively in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery around the eyes, and people are referred to us from across the globe with what are sometimes very complicated problems. In order to meet the demand to provide the very best advice and care, we have developed a unique, collaborative practice pattern.
Dr. Patrinely and Dr. Soparkar are highly trained, widely recognized, and broadly published oculoplastic surgeons. They have joined together in an unusual, interactive, and cooperative fashion, merging slightly different areas of super-specialized expertise. You have scheduled to see one physician, but depending upon the complexity of your problem and the office schedule, you may be examined by several, potentially providing you with more than one perspective and opinion. If this occurs, your insurance will be billed for only one examination.
In our office, you may also encounter other physicians. At any given time, we may be training up to 3 other doctors from around the world. These are exceptional physicians who have already completed 4 – 5 years of specialized medical training and have been carefully selected for further tutelage. You may find their opinions valuable as well.
Should you require surgery, be assured that your physician (Dr. Patrinely or Dr. Soparkar) will perform your procedure themselves, but some of the more complicated procedures require two pairs of skilled hands, and your physician may ask a partner to assist.
We hope that you will think of Dr. Patrinely and Dr. Soparkar as your physicians. They are often called emergently to provide assistance or advice to other doctors in the medical center, and there may be occasions that your physician will be called away, requiring the other partner to cover office visits. We will inform you of such events with as much notice as possible. If, for any reason, you find that you strongly prefer one physician to the other, please notify our staff, and we will make every effort to meet your needs.
Again, thank you for offering us the privilege to assist you. Please take this opportunity today to gain as much information and advice from your visit as you can. The more you know, the better equipped you will be to make important decisions.
