Whether it’s an involved surgery or a minor treatment, your experience with Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery starts when you contact us using our online form or by phone at 856-797-0202. Our office staff answers your questions and helps you schedule your first consultation.
During your consultation, you and New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Sorokin discuss your motivations for your surgery, as well as your medical history and other relevant information. Along with Alisha, his director of surgical services, Dr. Sorokin performs a physical examination to evaluate different factors and to determine your candidacy for your chosen procedures. Our staff may also take photos and measurements to add to your file. A patient coordinator then explains the preoperative process, including required tests, costs, financing options, and scheduling.
Dr. Sorokin’s nursing staff is present on the day of your surgery and helps you both before and after the procedure. At your follow-up appointments, Dr. Sorokin, Marla, and Ashlee will monitor your healing process. Recovery from plastic surgery is more than what is shown on Hollywood shows. Surgery requires recovery, which is far from glamorous. Not only do we guide you through this process explaining what to expect and what is normal but we also are here to give support through this period. Patients these days love to seek information on the internet about questions or concerns however Dr. Sorokin and our staff will be here to help get you through this many week process through in office appointments, and telephone or email contact.
At Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery, a good surgical outcome is truly a team effort. When the members of our staff work together as one capable unit, beautiful results inevitably follow.
