I had my first appt with Dr. Nakeeb in January 2003. They do the basics, ht, wt, vital signs, BP. Then you meet with the doctor and you talk about what you know about the surgery and your health history in detail. He will let you know if you are a good surgical candidate at this time. Sometimes they have a few things they want you to do before surgery (such as lose a few pounds, quit smoking, or stop caffeine/soda). He did a brief physical exam on me, and that was all. I then received a letter in the mail with the dates for my ultrasound of my gallbladder and my psych. eval. It was pretty simple and painless. I wish you the very best with your upcomin appt.
Keep us posted on how it goes!
