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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our International Coordinator is a registered nurse who has worked with Dominion Fertility for over 20 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. 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.
Complete Your New Patient Forms
To give our doctors ample time to review your medical history, please complete your new patient forms before your consultation. Additionally, please send all pertinent portions of your medical records directly to Dominion Fertility. You can email your forms to email@example.com.
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.
