Choosing a Fertility Doctor
Since it’s likely you’ll be attending frequent appointments at your fertility clinic, it’s very important to choose a fertility doctor you trust and you feel comfortable with. One way to do this is set up a consultation with one of the fertility doctors on staff. This will give you one-on-one time to get a better “feel” of the doctor.
Before your consultation, prepare a list of questions you’d like to talk about. This can be a stressful time, so having a list in front of you can prevent the possibility of forgetting something you’d like discussed. Some important things to hit include the experience of your fertility doctor, as well as his or her areas of specialization or treatment philosophy.
Your fertility treatment process will include a number of fertility professionals—not only your fertility doctor. For that reason, you also want to pay attention to the staff when you’re at your consultation. Observe how they relate to patients—do they seem to encourage questions, and take time to provide answers? You want to choose a place where you feel comfortable going to the staff—whether it’s your fertility doctor, a nurse, or another professional—with any kinds of questions you may have.
