Just say: Just say, doc please explain to me what is going on and what is required of me for the best outcome. Please talk to me like as i were your son or daughter. This should do the trick. Good luck from nyc.

Longer than 3 minute: It's best to come to a visit prepared with notes listing questions, concerns, issues, and advice needed...I as a surgeon do when i go to my cardiologist. You as a patient should expect in general 10 to 15 minutes of face time perhaps more depending on the issues involved.
