Infertility is always to be viewed as a couple’s issue and so it is quite important to bring any prior evaluation and office notes (including any IVF records, semen analyses, hormonal blood tests, etc) for each partner.  You cannot bring too many records – only too few.  If either partner has had therapy for cancer, please bring a summary of the chemotherapy regimen used and the pathology record.  If the male has had surgery on the scrotum, please bring the operative note (except for vasectomy where the note is not needed).

Semen analyses are done on site on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 7:15 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. with initial or follow-up visits that same morning, if a semen analysis is needed or will be helpful. Twenty-four (24) hour on-call services are provided by calling 617.638.8485. Our fax number is 617.638.8487
