An important message from Dr. Scroggins…
As we see many patients from out of town, Dr. Scroggins and his staff will do their utmost to make your Cosmetic Surgery trip to D.C. metropolitan area rewarding and enjoyable. Whether you are having surgery in surgicenter, or at nearby Doctors Hospital, we will provide helpful suggestions to maximize your comfort, and minimize time away from home.
We have arranged special guest rates for 2 of Maryland’s premiere hotels, and a number of tips are listed below concerning preparation for surgery, local attractions, access to maps, and other useful information concerning your stay in Greenbelt, Maryland.
We care about our out-of-town patients
We try to tailor out-of-town consultations and surgeries to fall on consecutive days, and do a compressed follow-up aiming to get patients home on the 3rd or 4th day post-op, but this leads to some logistical hurdles. Since it is difficult for patients to describe what I will see at consultation, and since I need this data well in advance of an out-of-town consultation, I request patients call the office (301) 220-0400 to talk to the staff about specifics of their health history, as well as habits such as smoking, use of medicines and homeopathics.
I also request a set of patient photos (front, both sides and 45 degree quarter-view photos — no faces). This allows me to make a good estimate of the potential need for skin tailoring (Mastopexy), as well as estimate the volume range of implants needed. Since surgical patients may require some help in the early hours post-op, it is important that all out- of- town patients have a companion at discharge, or we can put you in touch with a private- duty nursing agency, beforehand, to provide this for you on the day of surgery.
Currently some local hotels have arranged favorable rates and transportation for out-of-towners, to make your stay as pleasant as possible. There are ample activities available for visitors to Greenbelt, even those who are recuperating from surgery (Museums, Parks, etc.)
Special preferred rates are extended to our out-of-town guests at the following fine hotels:
