From the minute you walk in our door, you can expect personal attention and care in a comfortable, confidential environment.
During your first visit, our physicians and nurses begin by listening to you explain your fertility journey. Only when we understand your needs do we map your path to parenthood with you.
How long the visit last?
New patient visits last about an hour. You and your partner will meet with one of our board-certified physicians and our specialized team of nurses. This visit is an important first step toward helping us understand your fertility history and goals.
What happens during the visit?
Your first visit includes a comprehensive evaluation of your health history, aimed at identifying potential fertility factors that may prevent you from becoming pregnant. Your physician will review your medical history, your current health and your partner’s lifestyle (i.e., exercise, diet, medications). Your doctor may also order blood work as part of our diagnostic workup.
During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with our Financial Counselor to review your insurance coverage. We recommend verifying your infertility treatment insurance benefits before this visit. If your insurance company requires pre-authorization, we will submit this for you. Please call our office at 513-865-1675 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the verification process.
Do I need to bring my medical records?
Yes, please do. A review of your medical history is an essential part of a complete fertility assessment, including documenting medical conditions or prior treatments. You will need to contact your current OB/GYN or other medical professional to fax or send us your records. You may use our medical records release form to make this request easier.
Does my partner need to come to this first visit?
We believe that your partner is an essential member of this journey you are taking together. It is not mandatory that your spouse or partner come to the first visit, but male partners will need to meet with the physician at some point before treatment can begin.
What if I am on my period?
Most infertility treatments are scheduled around the first day of your period. An ultrasound can be done during this time as well. Just let the physician or nursing staff know, and we will make your visit as comfortable as possible.
