Good morning Tina,
Thank you for your interest in what we do. Sounds like you are well on your way. While we don’t hold paper (in house financing) we’d much prefer to give you a discount. This December, 2012 we re-opened a Grant program to help needy applicants with compassionate discounts. October is a promotional month. Medi-credit companies (see below) and sponsors are out there.
Taking your thoughtful questions in the order posed…
1. What type of hair removal do you do for the SRS. or will I need to get my electrolysis done before the procedure?
Yes all genital hair should be removed prior to surgery. We favor electrolysis over laser, less expensive and with local anesthesia seems to work better. Please see electrolysis diagram
2. Do you preform the Adam’s apple reduction procedure also?
We do not, but this procedure could be performed by another doctor in our office surgery center as a savings to you, but not at the same time
as primary vaginoplasty. Too much surgery.
3. Do you have financing? Our policy is to give you a compassionate price discount, but we don’t hold paper. A list of medi-finance companies is at the end of this letter. At least one is not acceptable to
our office. Could work somewhere else, perhaps.
4. How many days after my SRS will I have to stay in town?
We would like you to stay here for at least 7 days (as 80% of our patients do). Meaning if you have surgery on a Tuesday, you will leave Tuesday after noon. We have to see you in the office earlier that
day to remove packing and give you instruction about vaginal dilation. That morning is a busy day for you, so some patients will leave the following day.
5. Will a person come check up on me or do I need to come in daily to be looked at while I’m on stay over in the hotel?
We ask that you stay at one of 2 hotels, the Baltic or Daddy O and I will see you there every day except the 7th post op day, when you will return to our office.
After reading the attached, if you believe I am the doctor for you, please initiate a consultation over the phone with our office by sending us your name, address, and telephone number
in an envelope along with a check for 250. We’ll get started ASAP. We’ll have a lot to talk about.

We have noted 50% of our patients come in with a sponsor, could be a family member, loved one, spouse, significant other, business partner or church group.
For a line of Medi-credit, please try and ask if they work with Dr. Reed.

As per Katie… no terminal needed, initial set up fee $1995. Debit card, driver’s license, state ID or passport required. Need 30% or more down and we get paid as you pay the company, not a lump sum payment. One time set up fee of 10%.from the patient, not collected up front. Whole idea not acceptable to Dr. Reed.
automated phone application # is (800) 365-8295
Please be advised any service fees deducted from our check (often 3 to 5%), will be passed back to you for pre-payment. Some firms do, and others do not. Or anticipate the fee for surgery will in that case be somewhat higher.
With kindest regards,
Harold M. Reed, M.D.
