WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT WITH US
Your first visit to a fertility treatment centre can be anxiety provoking to say the least, not knowing what to expect and what the outcome might be. At Bioart Fertility Clinic, we are acutely aware of the anxiety and mixed emotions new patient’s face, particularly those who are venturing on this course for the first time. In order to prepare you, here is what you can expect on your first visit with us:
The main goal of your first appointment is to obtain as much information about you and your partner’s health as possible. Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment to complete all the administration associated with opening up a new file and fertility treatment course. At Bioart, we value you and your partner and the unique history and story of your fertility journey.
