It’s always a pleasure to hear what Kate can share with us about our patient’s experiences. It’s not guesswork or theoretical. It’s speaking to patients and people thinking about becoming patients, day in, day out.
We (RMACT) are so very lucky to have her.
When Should I See a Fertility Specialist?
Kate's Corner on Infertility Education
Here are a few additional words from her concerning what she wanted to impart to us today:
“We will always make an appointment for someone to find out more information about their fertility. We know that knowledge is power. Sometimes, insurance companies require that patients of certain ages try on their own for varying amounts of time (maybe different than our suggested timetable below), so we ask prospective patients to be sure to look into this with their own insurance companies.
Our job here is to support women about infertility and fertility. Knowing your own individual situation means being able to make educated and healthy decisions about your own family building”
Thanks Kate, we look forward to hearing more from you.
