Preparing for Your First Fertility Appointment
You can pay your bills, buy a car and even earn a degree from the convenience of your home. Why should seeing a doctor be any different? In a world that can be busy and often times confusing, why not learn more about your fertility options through a virtual visit with your doctor?
HFI will now offer telemedicine appointments for both new patient and follow up consultations. By use of modern technology, doctors can consult with you through HIPAA compliant video-conferencing tools, allowing for a customized consultation and treatment plan from the comfort of your home. There are many steps that can be accomplished through telemedicine appointments now.
Patients who visit Houston Fertility Institute can expect the highest levels of medical care. At your first visit, we know you will have lots of questions about fertility and we are here to help you with the most up-to-date techniques and treatments available.
Once you have scheduled your first fertility appointment, a team member will grant you access to our online portal and you will be asked to fill out a brief online intake form.
At your consultation, your doctor will review your past medical history to determine if there is any testing that needs to be done. Depending on your circumstance, your doctor may recommend simple blood tests, ultrasounds or possibly even a small diagnostic procedure to evaluate your reproductive health.
At the end of your visit, you will also have an opportunity to sit and talk with our financial counselors that work with each patient to help them navigate their individual health plans. It may be helpful to know that most patients with health insurance have very complete coverage for their consultation visit as well as diagnostic tests that your doctor may order. We have insurance verifiers and financial counselors that work with each patient to help them navigate their individual health plans and financial situations.
