Your initial appointment at Fairfield OMS with Dr. James Schemke or Dr. Jennifer Liu will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, with prior authorization, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. A complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slips and x-rays if applicable. (we accept all referral slips )
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring insurance cards with you. This will save time and allow us to process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have any medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
