The First Steps of Your Fertility Treatment in Atlanta
We look forward to starting the conversation with you about your family
building. It’s very helpful to know about your history and any prior
testing or evaluations you or your partner have had. We get this information
from you in two ways -- through your completion of our
New Patient Questionnaire and from having your medical records from other providers forwarded to
us for our review. The questionnaire provides an opportunity to for us
to thoroughly review your past medical history. It also allows you to
tell us, in your own words, about issues that you want to address with
us. Knowing your priorities helps us tailor a treatment plan to your specifications.
Gather All Your Medical Records
It is helpful to gather your medical records and provide them to our office
well in advance of your visit. Frequently, doctors offices forward only
their own records. If you and your partner have records in several locations
(as is often the case), you may need to request copies from the original
medical care providers.
You can expect that your physician and nurse will have reviewed your questionnaire
and medical records in advance of your visit and be prepared to talk with
you about questions you have raised. The questionnaire is extensive and
may require you to do some research to complete it accurately, but the
effort you invest in this will be rewarded with increased understanding
between you and your care team.
Your questionnaire will provide us with information on:
- Past medical history
- Important lifestyle issues such as exercise
- Smoking, and nutrition
- Menstrual history
- Pregnancy history
- Past hospitalizations and surgeries
- Prior fertility testing and treatment
- Allergies and medications (both prescription and over-the-counter supplements)
