Posted in General | Tagged Fertility consultation, Fertility diagnosis September 26, 2017

A consultation with one of the fertility doctors of Fertility Solutions is an excellent opportunity. We are committed to one-on-one time with our patients, including during your consultation.

New and prospective fertility patients can take comfort by knowing that our team understands what it’s like to begin this journey, and we can see how even basic logistics can feel overwhelming when the road ahead is unknown.

When preparing to visit one of our six New England locations for a fertility consultation, there are steps you can take to make the process a little easier. We’ve detailed these steps for anyone seeking a consultation with Fertility Solutions below.

1. I need to schedule an appointment with Fertility Solutions, what do I do?
Requesting an appointment for a fertility consultation is easy. To speak with someone directly, you can call our office (781) 326-2451 during business hours, or, you can fill out a contact form online. Our staff will make every effort to reply within 1-2 business days, so please reach out via a phone call if you need to speak with someone ASAP.

2. Okay, I’ve made an appointment. What’s next?
A date and a time are set for your fertility consultation, but there are likely a few things you can do to make the most of your appointment. In order to cut down on time spent in our reception area, we recommend that patients ask our staff whether they can download and fill out any paperwork from the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Also, if there are medical reports that need to be sent from another provider, the Medical Release Form can be found on our website to quicken the procedure. Coming to Fertility Solutions with your paperwork complete and insurance information ready can save time and get you in to see your specialist more quickly.

3. My paperwork is complete, my insurance is verified, is there anything else I can do?
Staying organized during fertility treatment can be tough, but we can promise that you will not regret the extra effort. We advise that patients come prepared to appointments with a list of their questions/concerns so they can be addressed in-person by their fertility doctor. Also, having a second person (spouse, partner, friend, parent) to participate during the visit offers a second set of ears and may help clarify the discussion points in the future.

Ultimately, our number one suggestion to patients looking to make the most of a consultation with a fertility specialist to is try your best to relax. We don’t mean that you “should just relax”, as so many well-meaning family members and friends will off-handedly suggest. We know that stress from a diagnosis and treatment plan is very real and difficult. So, we just hope some of the pressure will be relieved by knowing that you are in good hands, with an understanding, compassionate team who is on your side.
