Frequently Asked Questions

Is a referral necessary to see Dr. Seal for a consultation?

If you are coming in for a cosmetic consult, then no referral is needed to book in for your consultation. Simply call (709) 754-6165 to book your appointment. A one-time consultation fee will apply. If your procedure is medically necessary or is covered under MCP (ie. breast reductions/reconstructions) then a referral is needed and you will be seen by Dr. Seal at a different clinic.
