Your first appointment will be an important one. During this initial visit, you will meet all the members of your medical care team. This team communicates with each other and you during your treatment to ensure that every detail is considered and that your questions and concerns are addressed.
Please complete your Initial Consultation Medical and Personal History prior to your visit. (Link to Download Form at bottom of page)
You can help expedite the process by bringing in any pertinent medical records. These include a copy of your last Pap smear and any cultures you had for gonorrhea and chlamydia (routinely done during your Pap smear appointment). In addition, if you have had recent ultrasounds, a semen analysis, or a hysterosalpingogram (HSG), those reports should be obtained. Finally, if you have had any surgery on your uterus, tubes, or ovaries, a copy of the operative report is very helpful. That can be obtained either from the physician who performed the procedure or the hospital where the surgery was performed.
First, you'll meet with your reproductive endocrinologist, who will review your medical history and records and share his preliminary thoughts. Your doctor may also perform an ultrasound to visualize your ovaries and uterus. Next, you will meet with one of our nurses. She will review your recommended testing or treatment plan and help you schedule necessary blood work and/or procedure(s). Our staff will provide you with day-to-day instructions and facilitate the entire process. You will also meet with one of our financial coordinators to help you understand the extent of your benefits and the estimated cost of treatment options.
We want this infertility consultation and your treatment at Island Reproductive Services to go smoothly for you. To maximize your treatment goals, we ask that you and your partner provide your team with as much information as possible about your medical history and previous tests or treatment results.
We look forward to helping you achieve your dream.
