Phone and Email Consultations
Dr. Holmes offers limited and Phone and E-mail consultation for patients residing outside of the Los Angeles metropolitan area who are looking to determine if they might be a candidate for one of the innovative treatments offered by Dr. Holmes.
Email consultations are limited to a brief review of your mammograms, ultrasound, MRI and pathology reports to determine your eligibility for a treatment prior to making travel arrangements to Los Angeles. If you are found to be eligible for one or more treatments and would like to move forward with treatment, Dr. Holmes’s staff will work with you to arrange an office visit and treatment. In most cases, consultations, treatments, and additional imaging studies (if needed) can be completed in a short 2-3 day visit to Los Angeles.
Phone consultations are available in 30-minute increments at a modest cost after Dr. Holmes has had a chance to review your medical records. Please contact the office for more details.
Phone and email consultations are not meant to replace a formal consultation provided by Dr. Holmes which is normally accompanied by review of breast imaging studies (e.g., mammograms, ultrasound, and breast MRI images), a thorough breast examination, and a written report of treatment recommendations.
