The decision to meet with a fertility specialist can be overwhelming and intimidating at times. At The Fertility Center (TFC), we want you to feel as comfortable as possible from the moment you walk through our doors. We strongly believe in individualized care. Your new patient appointment will provide us with the opportunity to get to know you better and develop a personalized treatment plan. If another provider has performed fertility testing (e.g. blood work, imaging studies, or a semen analysis for your partner) and/or a surgical procedure before your appointment, it is very important that your records are forwarded to our office before your appointment. When our physicians receive these medical records ahead of time, it gives them ample time to review them and evaluate your prior fertility testing and treatment.
We provide our preliminary new patient forms here on our website for your convenience. This enables you to review each form and complete them at your own pace. Once you’ve printed and completed all necessary paperwork, you may email ([email protected]), fax (616-988-2010), or mail these forms to us prior to your first appointment. This will save you time and alleviate a lengthy registration process.
We ask that you please arrive thirty minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete your registration and get started with one our medical assistants. We will take your vitals as well as a complete medical history. Once that is complete, you will sit down with your TFC physician to discuss your prior testing, additional testing that may be recommended, and potential treatment options. Together, you will develop a treatment plan that is customized to you and your needs. If you have any additional questions about this visit, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to meeting you soon!
