Dear Dr. Reed,
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is J. F. Scott and I have a few friends who have set up consultations with your office. I know not to discuss names etc due to hippa laws, But my question is a very close friend of mine will be discussing a male to female srs procedure. My question is. I will be taking care of the cost via a cash payment but need to know what the cost for the procedure is and approximate hospitalization costs if the procedure is done at your location. If you can let me know I would greatly appreciate it.

Good morning Mr. Scott,
Thank you for your very generous support. We also known an unobtrusive woman fund for at least 5 patients out of kindness of her heart. Imagine that. This only confirms there is goodness in this world.
Our fees for surgery are posted on our web-site. Consultation is 250. Vaginoplasty is 14,500 and this includes surgery, anesthesia, use of the facility, an afternoon and night of RN private duty nursing care with myself in attendance throughout the night, and post-operative followup care. For touch ups (typically 4 months later) we simply ask the patient to pay 600 for anesthesia only.
Stents (vaginal dilators) 500 are additional as are out of pocket expenses for compressive stockings, bed protectors “chucks”, and some medications (perhaps 130 total for that). We can supply patients with clean stockings gratis if need be. On the day after surgery, the patient is conveyed to one of 2 Hotels, the Baltic or Daddy O. During the warmer months the rates are reduced to about 85 to 125 per day (could be less) . Both hotels have breakfast spreads gratis. There is no additional charge for 2 in a room.
Additionally all prospective patients for the past 6 months have received this letter…
Thank you for your interest in what we do. 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.
This year we are re-vitalizing our Grant with a slogan similar to one a few years ago (“the first 10 in 2010″), now it is “the first 12 in 2012.” This should reduce your fees by 10 to 20%, based upon need and availability of funds. So far 3 positions have been filled this month. Call the office and speak with Anne our amiable office manager for details.
