Initial Consult Appointment and New Patient Paperwork
The initial consultation typically takes between 1½–2 hours, depending upon your clinical circumstances. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive and individualized assessment to help you achieve your reproductive goals. During your consultation with the physician, we will review your history, medical records, tests results, and any surgical reports. Please bring or forward in advance any medical records that may be relevant to your condition. During your consultation, we will also perform a physical examination, including a vaginal ultrasound. At these meetings, you will be supplied with a wealth of information, and there will be plenty of opportunity to have all your questions answered. After meeting with our physician, a staff member will review any additional testing that is recommended by our physician. These tests can usually be completed within four weeks or one menstrual cycle. You will also have the opportunity to meet with a member of our financial team to review your insurance benefits.
We strive to provide complete and accurate information to you at all times. Please feel free to prepare a list of questions regarding both your clinical care and financial issues prior to your first visit.
New Patient Paperwork
Our New Patient Coordinator will instruct you on which forms to complete prior to your appointment. Please print out the necessary forms and bring completed along to your New Patient Consultation.
After your initial consultation with one of our skilled physicians, you will be scheduled for a return visit to review the findings from your initial visit and additional testing. This important appointment enables you, your partner (if applicable), and your physician to review treatment options and to assist you in making an educated decision on how to achieve your reproductive goals.
If your insurance plan requires you to have a referral, it is your responsibility to ensure that the authorization process is completed prior to your initial visit. Following your initial visit, all follow-up authorizations will be handled by our office.
The majority of patients, though not all, have some insurance coverage for consultations, initial testing, laboratory fees, and for testing to diagnose a fertility problem. It is your responsibility to know what your insurance does or does not cover, and ultimately, you are financially responsible for all charges. Our staff will assist you in verifying your benefits and will file insurance claims for covered charges to those HMO/PPO plans with which we are contracted providers. For your protection, request that any information you receive from an insurance company be in writing, and always keep a record of the name of the person with whom you spoke.
