A Note to Our Patients About Starting Treatment

A NOTE TO OUR PATIENTS

We hope that you and your family have stayed safe and healthy during these difficult times.  Moving forward, we are now resuming treatment cycles. In the meantime, we would like to update you on protocols we have implemented to maximize the safety of our patients and staff.

 

WHAT WE ARE DOING NOW

We have now started performing in office procedures including hysterosalpingogram, hysterosonogram and hysteroscopy.  We are also starting ovulation induction and in vitro fertilization cycles. We plan to start performing egg retrievals and embryos transfers (fresh and frozen) in May.  Our physicians are seeing patients via telehealth (over phone and computer).  To schedule a video consultation appointment, please call our office at 847-884-8884.

 

HOW WE ARE PREPARING TO INITIATE TREATMENT CYCLES

In addition to the above we are also implementing the following for patients:

  • All patients must wear a mask or another face covering when in the office.
  • Only patients with appointments for treatment/ monitoring are allowed to enter the office. No guests.
  • We encourage patients to wait in their cars and we will call them when we are ready to see them. The goal is to have a minimum number of patients and maintain distancing in our waiting rooms. 
  • When you arrive, you will be greeted by a nurse who will ask you COVID-19 related questions and take your temperature.
  • Patients must not come into the office if they have a cough, fever over 1000 F, shortness of breath or if they have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Patients will be asked to wash their hands once they enter the office.

All staff will be wearing PPE, and having their temperatures checked once at home and once upon entering the office.  We are cleaning the offices daily and wiping door knobs, handles, flat surfaces frequently as recommended by the CDC.

Thank you for your understanding at this time. Please stay safe and healthy!
