What is your cancellation policy?

We understand that sometimes life get’s in the way of keeping your appointment.

In order to serve all of our patients – BCOG requires at least 24 hours advance notice for cancelled appointments. If you do not cancel your appointment at least 24 hours prior to your appointment, or if you miss your appointment, you may be subject to a $50 missed appointment fee.

What age range do we care for?

We love caring for all women from childhood concerns through our later years in life.

Do I need a parent to come with me?

You are not required to have an adult with you for your visit. Your privacy and confidentiality are extremely important to us. For our patients 14 and older, we will review a privacy agreement, meaning you get to decide if we disclose any information to any other people. If you’d feel more comfortable with your parent with you for your visit, that’s great too!

What hospital is my baby going to be delivered at?

We celebrate all of your “birth-days” at Elliot Hospital – that’s a fancy way of saying we deliver babies at the Elliot.

I think I’m pregnant. When should I come in?

Congratulations! Early pregnancy is exciting but can also be filled with lots of questions. Give us a call and we will set up an appointment around 7-8 weeks of pregnancy. If you’d like to come in sooner, just let us know and we’d be happy to see you!

Will I have an ultrasound at my first visit?

In most cases, we do not routinely do an ultrasound at your first visit. We will spend most of our time answering your questions, getting a complete history, and talking about what to expect during pregnancy. Your first ultrasound is generally between 12-13 weeks of pregnancy.

What type of fertility services are offered?

One of the most important steps in fertility services is evaluation. It’s important to get a full picture.

Do you offer IVF?

We do not perform IVF in our office. We see couples through the fertility process and perform intrauterine inseminations in our office. If we feel you would benefit from IVF, we will refer you to one of our local partners.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal causes damage to your hair follicles which causes the follicle not to grow any more hair. We don’t specifically say “permanent” because as we age, we do develop new hair follicles. Typically, you will require 3-5 treatments to get rid of more than 80% of your hair. We offer touch up treatments at a reduced rate to keep up with any new follicular growth.

For more information, visit our laser hair removal services page.
