He wants to get a appointment and get a refferal to get a urologists,specialists advice, but one he doesnt know how to ask. 2 he has been searching for treatments and is wondering, he found some forms of treatment, 1 is frenulum removal,frenuloplatsy and second is circumcision. he is embarassed to ask his doctor for a refferal and is wondering how to get it and i'm wondering if insurance will cover it. We both need answers and it would be great if a expert or peopl and treatments could give us answers.
1: what can he expect from the refferal and if he choses one, what are the chances the doctor will respect it, and perform the procedure?
2: will insurance cover these procedures? .
