Traveling to WIFH in Atlanta
Many of our patients travel from out of town and even out of the country to have their procedures performed by Dr. Cox. We will help to make your visit to Atlanta and WIFH as simple as possible.
To help meet your needs we have prepared this page to review what is needed to set up a remote consultation with Dr. Cox. We have also put together a list of hotels and transportation companies you can choose from when planning your trip.
Your remote consultation
- We are able to schedule either a Skype or Facetime consultation for you to meet and discuss your desired procedure with Dr. Cox. Remember, Atlanta is on Eastern Standard Time, and sometimes on Daylight Savings Time, so be sure to confirm the time with Lindsay. Please be certain we have the correct Skype or Facetime contact information for Dr. Cox to contact you. We ask that your computer or Apple device be in a place with adequate lighting for us to assess the areas of concern properly.
- We ask that you take digital photos and wear suitable clothing (like a bathing suit) which discreetly shows the area of concern, for Dr. Cox to review prior to your remote consultation. You can email those directly to Lindsay, Dr. Cox’s Smartlipo Coordinator at Lindsay@wifh.com. Please take several photos: one from the front and a profile photo from both the right and left. Please also include your height and weight. If you do not have someone who can take these pictures for you, we recommend taking the pictures in front of a mirror so that we can see the different angles.
- Following your remote consultation, Lindsay will email over a quote to include the procedure(s) and areas you and Dr. Cox discussed. Should you decide to proceed with the procedure, we can do the remainder of the pre-operative process remotely as well. Consent forms will be sent via Docusign and you will sign them electronically. If you have not had recent blood work done we will set up an electronic lab requisition and send you to a Quest Diagnostics Laboratory nearest your home.
Lindsay is prepared to assist you with all of your Atlanta on the ground plans for your big day! Just call or e-mail and let us know if you have any special requests at all. In addition, we can give you lists of local restaurants and attractions in Atlanta if you are traveling with other family members or friends.
