Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

Are you on fosamax? If so, what dose and for how long?

Is your cataract surgeon very experienced?

Is there anything about your cataract that makes it unusual or might predispose to increased surgical difficulty?

Urolift will have no effect on your cataract surgery......

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
