Preparing for Your First Visit

First Steps

We are privileged to walk beside you during your path to parenthood. The first step to realizing your dream starts here. We are happy to help.

SRM is a private practice in the specialty of reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Our main focus is the treatment of infertility and helping patients achieve a healthy pregnancy. To schedule an appointment with any of our providers, please call our SRM Patient Services team at 877.777.6002. Or request an appointment by using the purple chat box on this page.

Your First Visit

We provide all our new patient visits via telemedicine and have created an informative blog post with quick tips and a FAQ for optimizing your consultation.

Your initial consultation at SRM is an opportunity for us to get to know you better. You will meet with your SRM provider to review your medical and fertility history, review your goals, and come up with a plan of action; this generally takes 45–60 minutes.

Your Patient Experience Liaison

When a new patient consultation is requested, you will have a dedicated Patient Experience Liaison that will help schedule you with the appropriate provider and be your contact should you have questions prior to or after your new patient consultation. They are available if you need them during your journey here at SRM.

Your Care Team

Your care team includes a dedicated nurse coordinator who will reach out to you once they have received your treatment plan from your SRM provider. Your nurse will work with you to ensure you understand all the recommended diagnostic testing and treatment options, and to go over any questions you may have.

Your dedicated finance counselor will reach out to review your insurance coverage, discuss financing options, review costs of treatment, and answer any financial questions you may have.


Prior to Your First Visit

Please complete the necessary registration forms in your patient portal. It is important your provider has all of you and your partner’s (if applicable) information prior to your telemedicine visit.

As you prepare for your first visit with SRM, you might enjoy listening to The Whole Pineapple podcast episode on just this, Your First Visit to a Fertility Clinic, Episode 3, “Dr. Nichole Barker demystifies that first visit: when it’s time to make the appointment, what will likely happen at the clinic, how you can prepare beforehand, and more.”

As you wait for your first visit, you can schedule an appointment with a Wellness Program provider to gain guidance on how to best prepare your body for optimum reproductive health. We collaborate with you to create a holistic individualized wellness plan that will complement your fertility to increase chances of conception, prevent burnout, and/or help manage PCOS and other conditions. Call our main line to discuss options. Visit our Wellness Program webpage for more details.

We look forward to meeting you.
