What to Expect Prior to Treatment



What to Expect Prior to Treatment

Initial Consultation

The purpose of your initial consultation with us at HRC Fertility (HRC) is two-fold; to evaluate your case as comprehensively as possible and to provide you with pertinent information about your care and our program. Please plan to spend two hours with us, as you will be spending quality time with both your physician and nurse coordinator.

Because it is extremely important to obtain as much information as possible, we encourage and invite both partners to attend the initial consultation and bring all past medical records and test results that are pertinent to your care.

Both partners must complete the History section of the Patient Portal before the initial consultation. Your physician will review your health information with you. You will receive instructions on accessing the Patient Portal when you schedule your initial appointment. 


Financial Consultation

Prior to beginning treatment, a financial consultation will be necessary. This meeting with our financial counselor is designed to provide you with information regarding HRC’s financial programs, and, if applicable, to understand your insurance coverage. 


Prior to Cycle Start

The following will need to be completed:

  • All necessary lab screening and diagnostic testing
  • Financial and clinical consents must be signed
  • Insurance benefits verified, and
  • Financial counselor clearance for cycle fees.


Patient Advocate

Our Patient Advocate is available should you have suggestions, concerns, complaints, or just need someone to talk to. We are constantly striving to assist our patients, both medically and emotionally, throughout their treatment here at HRC.
