Prior to your consultation, one of our New Patient Coordinators will help you get the information you need to help you have the most productive initial consultation possible. Our staff conducts a preliminary telephone interview to assure that you are adequately prepared for the appointment. If necessary for insurance coverage, a referral authorization must be received by our office before scheduling an appointment. We attempt to see patients with urgent medical or surgical conditions as quickly as possible.
Prior to your Initial Consultation
We would like to obtain any of your relevant previous medical records such as any fertility testing results or fertility treatments. Please inform our staff if you have any such records so we may assist you in obtaining them. We may need your help to forward the authorization for release of medical information to any of your prior physician(s) and hospital(s) to obtain copies these relevant medical records. In addition, we encourage you to obtain copies of surgical notes and videotapes, actual X-ray films and copies of laboratory tests.
The Initial Consultation
The consultation usually takes 45 minutes. Your doctors will take your history, answer any questions you might have, recommend any pertinent tests, review your medical records, if any, and recommend and explain treatments, if applicable. If appropriate, you may also meet with our financial specialist to go over the costs of infertility treatments and your insurance coverage, and you may also meet our team who will be assisting you during your treatment.
In the event you are not able to obtain all the necessary information you will need for your initial consultation, our Case Coordinator will work with you in obtaining any omissions and answer additional questions you may have.
Evaluations & Fertility Assessment
Infertility evaluations require a spouse or partner to sign a separate authorization for release of medical information to obtain copies of his records and semen analysis reports.
For a comprehensive fertility assessment, both partners are encouraged to be present at the first appointment. This evaluation usually requires approximately an hour. The cost for an initial office visit depends on the type of testing necessary to establish a diagnosis for each couple and is generally in the range of $300. If you are not prepared for this expense at the time of your visit, please let us know immediately so that additional testing can be postponed.
