Dr. David Baer and Dr. James DeLine
Our General Surgery Process
Welcome to South Surgical Group. We are glad that you have entrusted us in your care! Please note that surgical procedures will not be performed on the day of your initial consultation.
What to Bring to Your First Appointment:
You will be asked to fill out several forms prior to your arrival. Please bring:
• Completed Forms
• Health Insurance Information
• Picture Identification
• Proof of Address
You should arrive 30 minutes early to fill out paperwork if you have not already entered this information.
What to Expect at Your First Appointment:
You will be greeted by the receptionist and then taken to an exam room by one of our Medical Assistants. You will be seen by your surgeon and a physical examination will be performed along with the review of your current medical history. Surgical treatment options will be discussed.
If you are to proceed with surgery, you will meet with one of our surgical schedulers where you will discuss options for potential days and times to have your surgery. In most cases, you will be contacted within 24 hours of your appointment to confirm a date and time.
