It’s understandable to want a second opinion if you are feeling confused or uncomfortable with your current journey. Because we offer innovative and different ways of approaching fertility treatments, it’s not uncommon for us to see patients who have started their journey at other clinics or with other doctors, and who want to know more or what else is out there.
Our doctors will happily discuss your treatment plans and provide you with recommendations for next steps. Although you may have started your journey elsewhere, we believe in due diligence and ensuring every box is ticked so we have all the information needed to provide you with your best chance.
If you are coming across from another clinic, we ask you to provide any previous test results you have undertaken, however previous treatment cycle information is not necessary if it is too difficult to obtain. We may also ask you to undergo further testing that your previous clinic did not request. We don’t charge an incoming handling or service fee if you wish to bring embryos, eggs or sperm from another clinic and can organise all the transfer and storage between ourselves and your previous clinic for you.
At Demeter we don’t want you to feel as though you are having to start all over again but we also don’t want to offer you subpar service by not taking all the relevant steps necessary to gather information about your health and fertility. Please call our admin staff to discuss further about swapping clinics or getting a second opinion.
