Fertility FAQs from IVF Plano

Fertility FAQs to Prepare You for Your First Visit

You likely have questions about what to expect with your first visit to a fertility specialist, fertility treatment and testing. IVF Plano Patient FAQs help build a foundation.

I’ve already gone through a lot of tests with my Ob-Gyn. Do I have to repeat them all again with IVF Plano?

No. If you have already begun fertility testing, please ask your Ob-Gyn to forward your medical records to our office. Once we receive this information, Dr Douglas can determine if you will need any additional testing.

How do I know if I need a referral to IVF Plano?

Call the member number on the back of your insurance card to verify whether or not your plan requires that you obtain a referral to see a specialist. If you need a referral, contact your Primary Care Physician or Ob-Gyn to request a referral before your first appointment.

How long will the first visit take and should my partner come with me?

The actual time can vary due to the specific circumstances of your situation. In general, most new patient consults last between 45 minutes and one hour. We recommend that you and your partner both attend the appointment.

How will I know that you have received my online paperwork?

You should get immediate confirmation when the email is sent to our office. Also, you can expect to hear from our office about your benefits in 24 to 48 hours. If for some reason you do not hear from us within this time period, please feel free to contact our office.
