Anyone meet the MD that assisted?

Mine cost $2600 for my doc's fee but I am not sure what was the assists fee. My Surgery was 26k but with insurance it made it 13k. I only paid the $500 deduct and $1,000 out of pocket. Worked for me. Bad thing is I have until Dec 31 to fix anything before a new deduct comes in. Darn calander years. I met the asist doc yesterday at my app and he was really nice and I feel great.

I had my hyst in a teaching hospital as well. My dr. told me he was going to have a student assist him. He's a well respected Dr. and professor so I had complete trust in him.

She (the student) came to visit me before the surgery and I was a little surprised to see this 20 something year old woman - don't even want to begin to think about what I was doing at that age.

She was great though. She referred to my Dr. as a "Rock Star" as far as surgeons go and was very excited to be assisting him.

Her enthusiasm was comforting to me.

My anesthesiologist had 2 students for assistants as well.

The OR nurse had been an OR nurse there for 30 years. She visited me beforehand and said that she keeps a sharp eye on everyone during the surgery and not to worry because she is super strict. She was like the grandma in the OR. It was great. What a team!

I had never had the whole team come out and meet me beforehand. If I ever have another surgery I would request to meet everyone before surgery again.

I was told by my surgeon which of his partners would be assisting at my post-op. I never actually met him, however, on the night before the surgery I found that I had an infected ingrown pubic hair in the area where one of the incisions was to be made. When I called the office after hours, the assisting returned my call, asked appropriate questions, was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about and they could go ahead with the surgery. He then told me to get a good night's sleep and he'd see me in the operating I was left with a very good feeling about him.

My Dr's Assistant came into the Pre-Op room and introduced herself to me. She was like a 3rd year resident, but was very nice. i was surprised, and asked her if she'd be doing anything major. She said no - just helping with the clamps, etc...

As for hospital records, Yes!~ You can call your hospital's medical records department, and ask for any (or all) of your records for that visit... Be sure and ask if there is a fee. At my hospital, we give one copy of anything Free, but if duplicates are asked for, there is a charge then. But, no problem at all to ask - people do it every day!

Hope that helps
