Preparing for your infertility consultation
It’s our pleasure to welcome you to Green Valley Fertility Partners. We are here to help you through the process of diagnosis and treatment, starting with your initial consultation with your physician and patient coordinator here at our clinic. The goal of this first visit is to thoroughly evaluate your medical history, outline a diagnostic plan to determine the specific needs of your case, and to design a treatment plan that is customized to your individual situation. Your physician and patient coordinator will be spending one-on-one time with you during this initial visit, making sure you are an informed and knowledgeable participant in your treatment.
To assist you in preparing for your consultation, we have outlined some commonly asked questions regarding what to expect during and after your consultation, materials and information to bring with you, and important pre-consultation reminders.

How should I prepare for the initial consultation?
Please bring your driver’s license and insurance cards to your appointment. After your consultation, our billing department will call your insurance and find out what coverage, if any, you may have for fertility diagnosis or treatment. Prepare to bring with you a copy of your medical records from your OB/GYN, primary care physician, or any other fertility programs that add to your medical history. This copy will be for the office to keep on file as a part of your medical record, so make sure that you have your own personal copy as well. Your doctor can also fax these records to us directly, but arranging this will be your responsibility.
