You have been so gracious in answering and putting mind at ease about my concerns waking up during surgery. I hope to meet you on the 16 th. I will be paying out of pocket for my consultation with Drs. Tsangaris and Sacks. Would you be able to give me an idea of what their fees will be?
Also, If I decide to have risk reduction surgery would you be able to give me an idea how much this will be out of my pocket. Thank you so much for everything!

|4/11/2012||To tell you the truth i actually don't know the fee schedules. if you call 410-955-2615 i think that Dr T's secretary can likely tell you though. We can have you see folks in the finance office who can help with determining expenses associated with surgery.|
I'm downtown at our breast center on the 16th so please do ask for me!!!
