When you have a consultation with your surgeon you should feel comfortable and relaxed. You should never feel rushed during your consultation; your surgeon should give you his full attention and not be constantly looking at the time as this can be very off putting. You should also judge your potential surgeon by the way they speak to you. There should be the perfect balance of professionalism as well as informality.
