Fertility treatment monitoring

In order to assist your clinic with the monitoring of your cycle, we will require clear instruction in the form of faxed orders from your physician.  The order must direct us on the specific service listed in (1) above and the date that it must be performed.  Our clinical staff is not responsible for treatment cycle planning and will not be making management decisions.  It is important that we receive instructions from your managing clinic regarding what services are to be provided, by fax no later than 3 p.m. (PST) the day prior to the appointment.  Our clinic staff will do their utmost to provide your clinic with results prior to 12 noon on the day of your visit providing that you attend your appointment at or before the 7:30 a.m. appointment time.  Questions or concerns regarding your treatment must be directed to your treating physician.

PCRM Pharmacy

Please refer to the PCRM pharmacy patient information letter.  Our satellite patients have the same access to our pharmacy services 24/7, assuming your clinic provides us with prescriptions in a timely fashion.  During weekdays, we must receive a faxed prescription from your doctor before 12 noon (PST), in order for the prescription to be filled the same day.  On weekends and holidays, prescription must be received before 10 a.m. (PST).
