Telemedicine Consultation At Western States HIFU
Online & Telephone HIFU Consultation with Dr. Robert Pugach
During this difficult time as we are adjusting to stay at home orders, it is important to know that you can discuss your prostate cancer concerns, diagnosis and treatment from the safety of your home.
We are the first urology practice in the western United States to offer online consultations for prospective patients. We can do this via our video conferencing or with a telephone call.
In order to make your online consultation as effective as possible, we ask that you provide information about your prostate cancer to us in advance of our meeting. Medical and laboratory data that is typically required includes:
- PSA levels
- Biopsy reports
- Pictures and measurements from your ultrasound examination during your biopsy
- Imaging study results – MRIs and bone scans, if these were done
- Copies of office notes and records from your urologist
- Copies of office notes and records from your primary care physician pertaining to your general health
We can give you more specifics when you call to schedule your online consultation. It’s easy!
Out-of-Area Travel To Western States HIFU
Dr. Robert Pugach treats patients from many other states and countries. While the distance you travel to have a consultation often is a secondary concern when you seek a Prostate Cancer Center of Excellence that offers you the most advanced, non-invasive treatment for your prostate cancer, we understand logistical challenges and offer several easy options.
At Western States HIFU we do our best to make your travel experience as seamless and pleasant as possible.
We have two principal offices. They are located at:
- 3801 Katella Avenue, Suite 110, Los Alamitos, California 90720 (accessible from LAX & Long Beach airports)
- 16843 Algonquin Street, Huntington Beach, California 92649 (accessible from Orange County airport)
Because all of our diagnostic testing is done in our Los Alamitos (Orange County, CA) office, we encourage you to visit that office.
At Western States HIFU, we can converse with you in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Vietnamese. If you have additional language requirements be sure to tell us in ADVANCE OF YOUR ARRIVAL so we can arrange for translation services.
All fees for out of state patients must be paid in full in advance of your visit unless we have a valid authorization from your insurance plan. Fees must be paid in U.S. currency and payment is coordinated with HIFU Prostate Services who can also help arrange for financing your HIFU procedure.
