First Visit with Palo Alto Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. Please call us if you have any questions: Palo Alto Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Phone Number 650-617-1900.
