What to Expect When You Visit PCRM Fertility Clinic in Metro Vancouver

Posted on June 11, 2019

The Pacific Centre for Reproductive Medicine (PCRM) is a state-of-the-art fertility clinic that offers comprehensive IVF and reproductive medical care in Metro Vancouver. If you are planning to visit our clinic for the first time, here’s what you should expect:

Before your appointment

Before you book an appointment, you will need a referral from your family doctor or doctor at your local walk-in clinic. You may fax this referral to us and once we have received it, we will contact you to schedule a consultation with one of our fertility specialists. When we contact you to arrange your first consultation, we will confirm your personal information and send you a welcome letter. We will also give you access to our patient portal. You will need to log in to the patient portal and complete an evaluation for at least 48 hours prior to your appointment.

In most cases, we recommend blood tests to be done before your appointment. These blood tests may be done at any reputable laboratory of your choice. If you have visited any other fertility clinic before or if you have had any recent blood tests outside of ones ordered by our office, bring copies of those records with you to the consultation.

The initial consultation

When you arrive for your first consultation, please be sure to bring two pieces of identification to allow for a smooth check-in at reception. During the consultation, the fertility specialist will assess your recent lab results and ask you to share information regarding your medical and reproductive history. We encourage you to take the opportunity to ask questions as well.

Every patient is unique, so the course of action that our fertility doctor will recommend is dependent on your circumstances. The doctor may recommend treatment or may suggest you undergo further tests. After you have completed all your pre-treatment test and your lab results are on file, our physicians will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for optimal results.
