New Patient and Follow-Up Visits
Initially, you will be scheduled for a comprehensive new patient consultation. During your first visit, a complete history will be taken with review of past treatments. Additional tests may be scheduled. Please bring your completed Registration Form and Infertility Evaluation form, along with all current insurance cards and necessary referrals. Also, please bring all old medical records including operative notes, laboratory tests, and x-ray films.
Confirmation of Your Appointment
In an effort to keep our clinics efficient, an automated verification service is used to confirm your appointment with us. The service will attempt to contact you starting three evenings before your appointment. When you answer this call it will ask you to confirm your appointment or give you an opportunity to reschedule or cancel. If the service is unable to reach you in three attempts, then our patient service representative will make two additional attempts. Please ensure that we have your accurate telephone number because if we are unable to confirm your appointment, it will be cancelled. We will make all efforts to reschedule you at the next available opportunity.
If you must cancel your office visit, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance. Failure to notify our office 24 hours in advance will result in a charge of $150 (new patients) or $50 (return patients) unless the cancellation was because of a valid emergency. Your insurance carrier does not pay for cancelled appointments. After payment of the cancellation fee, you will be rescheduled in your doctor’s next available opening.
We ask that you (and your partner if applicable) obtain all prior medical records and any other medical documents from your referring physician before your consultation date. These include (but not limited to) pap smears, blood tests, ultrasound reports, operative notes, and office notes. Without these records, your evaluation and management may be delayed or duplicated.
You have a right to your medical records that are generated from Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates of Memphis, PLLC. A completed and signed Medical Record Release as well as a paid copy/mailing fee as allowed by Tennessee law is required.
