International Patients

We’ve been a leader in treating infertility for over 30 years, and many of our patients have traveled from around the world to receive our compassionate care and effective, cutting-edge treatments.

We have many patients who travel from all over the country to receive care at our clinic. If you live outside of the United States, we will do everything we can to help make the process as simple as possible.

Contact our International Coordinator for a free consultation

If you are considering traveling from out of the country to our clinic, we provide a free consultation with our International Coordinator. You can contact them at [email protected]

Our International Coordinator is a registered nurse who has worked with Dominion Fertility for over 15 years. As our International Coordinator, her job is to be the primary point of contact and support prior to your visit to the United States. During your initial consultation, she will give you an overview of your specific treatment and all information regarding how a cycle would proceed.

Our International Coordinator will then schedule your phone consultation with one of our doctors

Following your complimentary consultation with our International Coordinator, they will provide you with the necessary paperwork and coordinate your phone consultation with one of our doctors during their normal working hours.

Your initial phone consultation with the doctor will last approximately 30 minutes. At the time of your appointment, you will receive a phone call from our office. If you require more time with the doctor, our International Coordinator will be happy to schedule follow up consultations.

Please contact our International Coordinator for information on consultation fees. Such fees will be applied toward treatment if you choose to proceed with treatment at Dominion Fertility.

Please complete new patient forms before your consultation

To give our doctors ample time to review your medical history, please complete your new patient forms before your consultation. Additionally, please also send all pertinent portions of your medical records directly to Dominion Fertility. You can email your forms to [email protected]

All information must be received prior to your phone consultation.

The next step is a medical evaluation in our office

After your initial phone consultation, we will schedule a one day medical evaluation in our office. This will be the first appointment where you will be traveling to us.

Your medical evaluation will include several tests, which might include a sonogram, cervical cultures, an HSG, and a mock embryo transfer. The scheduling of your medical evaluation will depend upon the timing of your menstrual cycles.

If you are part of a female/male couple, the male partner might want to consider having his sperm collected and cryopreserved at this time. If a sample is frozen, the male partner will not necessarily need to return to our clinic when the IVF procedure is performed. If this is an option you would like to consider, the male partner must have STD testing completed and sent to our office before arriving for the medical evaluation. We will not be able to do the collection and cryopreservation without STD testing.

Additional consultations with our nurses, our billing department, or our psychologist Dr. Joyce Migdal may be necessary depending upon your treatment plan. When arranging for your visit to our office, our nurses will inform you if additional testing or consultations will be necessary and then assist you in making those arrangements.

Frequently asked questions

We know that international travel comes with a unique set of decisions and questions. We’ve compiled a few of the most common questions below.

Can I do any of my testing in my hometown?

Yes, though we do not recommend it. Our cutting-edge laboratory is part of what makes Dominion Fertility great. Choosing to do your testing with us helps ensure accurate and timely results.

If you choose to do some of your testing elsewhere, we are willing to work with various clinics for certain parts of your medical evaluation, but we cannot take responsibility for mistakes in testing or in the transmission of test results to our office. Additionally, all prescribed tests must be performed within three months of initial consultation with the exception of the HSG.

How long will I have to spend in Washington, DC, once I am in my treatment cycle?

Your treatment cycle will likely take place within 2 months after your initial visit to Dominion Fertility for your medical evaluation.

You will need to travel to Dominion Fertility for your final sonograms prior to your egg retrieval and embryo transfer. This process lasts about 7–10 days.

When you are medically released to leave, usually 24 hours after the procedure, you may travel back to your home.
