My experience was like yours. I was thrilled to get the surgeon I did -- I had a 1/2-hour consultation with him by phone, then an in-person consultation the day prior to surgery.
The next time I saw him was just before I was wheeled into the operating room and the next day he came to the hospital (on a Saturday) to see how things were going. Five days later, I got the post-op pathology report from his nurse, which was fine with me. If I had needed to talk to him personally at that time, he would have been acessible. (He was available to me long after surgery by phone.)
So it sounds like you're on the same track I was.
Best to ya...
