Below is an overview of what to expect during you first visit with us. Please feel free to contact our office if you have additional questions or concerns about your initial consultation.
Prepare for your first visit
To make the most of your fist visit with us, please bring the following items:
Completed New Patient Forms
We request that you please complete the New Patient Forms prior to your first visit.
A passport or state issued license are both acceptable forms of ID
A copy of your medical records is not mandatory to begin treatment
We encourage you to write down your questions prior to your first visit with us and bring them with you to your appointment. You may have a lot to discuss in your initial consultation with the physician; this is a great way to ensure you have covered all questions and concerns.
We also suggest that you take notes during your visit so that you can refer back to them should you forget any part of your discussions with the nurse or physician.
Upon check in, you will be greeted by one of our patient liaisons who will request your completed New Patient Forms and identification. After you have checked in, you will then meet with the physician.
Your initial consult and visit with the physician is a comprehensive evaluation of your history and medical records. Your appointment will typically last about 45 to 90 minutes. During your visit with the physician you will have the opportunity to have all of your questions answered. It is highly recommended to have both partners attend the first visit so that everyone is actively aware of the treatment plan.
After you have initially met with the physician, a vaginal ultrasound will be performed. The physician will discuss the results with you and answer any additional questions you may have.
After you have met with the physician, you will have a consultation with the nurse to further discuss the treatment plan you and the physician have agreed upon as well as medications needed for treatment. During this time the nurse will also answer any additional questions you may have and provide detailed instructions to ensure you feel confident about your treatment plan.
