OUT OF TOWN PATIENTS

Many patients at ALIA travel considerable distances for our expertise in this procedure.  We are located 10 minutes from Dulles International Airport with direct flights to/from many cities worldwide.  We facilitate this process by providing the option of same-day consultation/same-day surgery. This is arranged in advance and by request at the time that you contact our office. Pre-operative blood-work testing will need to be performed in advance through a local physician or lab near your home. Dr. Tajkarimi will review your situation to determine if this is an appropriate option. If you fly, or if your drive home is more than 2 hours, we recommend that you stay in the area overnight after your surgery so that Dr. Tajkarimi and his team can evaluate you for proper healing on the day after surgery; afterwards, you may travel home.  There are many excellent and cost effective hotel options in Herndon, Dulles, and Reston Virginia.
