In brief: Busy but exciting

Meet the doctor and staff for extensive review of your medical, surgical, and fertility histories.
Most do this with both spouses present. Blood testing, physical exams, and imaging studies may be done at this visit or scheduled later. You might review medical consent forms. Most offices will offer (or may require) you have a brief financial consult with a staff member.
