One Hour Office Infertility Consultation
After an initial phone or email consultation, you may wish to make an appointment to see Dr. Ramirez in person for an in-depth, one hour office consultation. For first time infertility consults, any information you may have from your primary care physician will be helpful. Copies of your medical records and any recent tests or laboratory results should be sent to our clinic prior to the meeting in order for the doctor to have a clear understanding of what you may or may not have done already. This holds true for second opinions as well. More often than not, there are still additional tests to be done that if overlooked, could make a difference in a successful treatment path.
Dr. Ramirez believes in being very thorough in his evaluations and giving his opinion on what your treatment options may be. By the end of the interview, you should have a clear understanding of what the next step might be and develop a plan of action, from conservative to aggressive. Our philosophy is that the patient should be aware of all their treatment options, any pros and cons, what their chances of success and the approximate costs of each option before deciding on the “best” treatment.
The charge for an in-office consultation of one hour in duration is $300. If the patient pays in cash or check there is a 20% discount. The consult fee is a one-time fee and cannot be applied towards any other service. For second opinions, especially for those who are outside the country, Dr. Ramirez can consult with you via telephone or Skype. Please see more information on Skype consultations.
