For patients who express interest in surgical procedures with Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva, but do not have the capability to see us in person, we offer a complimentary virtual consultation that can last up to 30 minutes. After booking the consultation with our staff, a Facetime or Skype consult would be initiated on the scheduled day by our office staff. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva will be able to speak directly to the patient to address his/her concerns via Facetime/Skype. For most facial procedures our preliminary consultation can be done this way. Some complicated rhinoplasty procedures or botched surgeries from other facilities may require an additional in-person consultation. For our body procedures such as breast lifts or tummy tucks, further in-person measurements are needed so we don’t do those consults virtually. We offer the virtual consults in english, mandarin (chinese), cantonese (chinese), japanese, korean, and vietnamese. Let me know if you have any additional information.
