At the VIP Surgery Center of Excellence, we know how difficult the surgical process can be, especially for our international patients. Scheduling a consultation with a doctor, making flight plans and travel arrangements, and booking a hotel are activities that add unnecessary stress and anxiety to a patient. At La Peer, we feel as though a patient should be relaxed and comfortable during surgery, which is why we’re proud to offer VIP concierge service to our international patients.
With over 50 world-renowned doctors in sixteen specialties, La Peer Health Systems is the premiere outpatient surgical facility in the United States. Our specialists have attended the most prestigious universities and medical academies in the country, and many have been named Super Doctors by Los Angeles Magazine and Top Doctors by U.S. News & World Report. Across all our specialties, our doctors all have the same goal: to provide patients with excellent service and care.
The VIP Concierge Experience
If you are an international patient, the VIP Surgery Center of Excellence would like to make your stay as easy and as comfortable as possible. Our VIP concierge experience provides patients with translator services, a travel agent to coordinate flights, hotel transportation, after-care arrangements (such as a private nurse), and access to the many hotels and recovery centers within Beverly Hills, including the prestigious Pearl Recovery Retreat.
The Pearl Recovery Retreat coordinates with doctors to schedule pick-up times, recovery methods, and length of stay for all of their patients. After a procedure has been performed at the VIP Surgery Center of Excellence, staff from Pearl Recovery Retreat will pick up patients and take them to the retreat itself, where they can recover under the supervision of around-the-clock nurses and staff. While at the recovery center, patients can follow their doctor’s protocol in a safe and pleasant environment.
Of course, patients will be free to stay at any hotel of their choosing. To make things easier to patients, La Peer offers international patients discounted hotel rates for hotels all throughout Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.
In addition to providing our patients access to hotels, recovery centers, and a variety of transportation options, La Peer Health Systems offers Skype consultations for our international patients. During these consultations, patients can converse with our expert specialists from the comfort of their own homes, without the need to fly out-of-country. These Skype consultations are useful for many reasons: they allow our doctors to familiarize themselves with a patient and his or her symptoms, it provides patients the opportunity to speak with their potential surgeon, and it allows patients to notify doctors of their needs and desires regarding surgery, allowing both parties to come to an understanding.
Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of a Skype consultation is that it saves patients time and money. Ideally, a patient should only have to fly out for their surgery. At La Peer, we work extremely hard to provide our patients with the most convenient and favorable options, ensuring that their stay is comfortable and hassle-free.
Travel Arrangements with our Concierge Experience
For our international clients, La Peer Health Systems will provide a travel agent to coordinate and arrange flights and pick-up times. Scheduling a flight can be an extremely stressful experience, and frankly something we find unconducive to our patients, who typically are already under various amounts of stress. At La Peer, we want our patients to fully concentrate on their recovery and improvement and not have to worry about flight plans at all.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What benefits does La Peer have over a hospital?
A: Unlike hospitals, La Peer Health Systems is an outpatient surgical facility. This means that all of our surgeries are scheduled ahead of time, and patients will not have to wait or experience delays like they would at a typical hospital. In addition, La Peer will only perform surgery when a patient is at full health. We do this so that other patients won’t have to risk catching an infection or disease like they could at a hospital.
Q: I live outside of the United States. What is La Peer’s insurance policy regarding international patients?
A: At La Peer, we pride ourselves on having so many international clients. If you are from out-of-country and are unsure if your insurance will cover your operation, please contact us today. The specialists at La Peer will extensively examine your insurance policy and determine the full extent of your coverage.
