In Office Procedures

You do not need to be pre-diagnosed to see Dr. Watkins. If you are self-referred, he will perform tests during your initial consultation, and can perform some of the procedures the same-day.
In-office procedures are defined as procedures that can be completed safely under local anesthesia without the need for sedation or general anesthesia. 

The advantages of completing these select procedures under local anesthesia are the following:

  • Cost control- no high “Facility Fee”, no anesthesia fee
  • The payment, in some cases, can be applied to your deductible
  • No need for fasting
    You may continue all your medications, even some blood thinners
  • The procedure in some cases can be completed on the same visit as the consultation
  • No change in complication or infection rates compared to hospital based cases
