    New Patients Guide
I highly recommend/expect our new patients read each and every page of this website thoroughly before coming in for their initial visit. It is important to understand what kind of journey they are about to embark upon with my guidance.  

My role and intention is to help you get pregnant AND maintain the pregnancy. Your goal is to be a mother of a healthy baby, not just to be pregnant. Making your body produce lots of eggs is not difficult. But, making your body produce ¡°good quality eggs¡± is vital to be able to conceive and to maintain the healthy pregnancy. Traditional Chinese medicine is not a quick fix. Restoring the body to health takes time. Some conditions have been a long time in the making, and it may take a while for the body to unmake them. 

If you are interested in becoming a new patient, please follow the steps listed below. 

1.  Click on the Schedule An Appointment Online link or call 724-799-8393 to make your appointment. If you made an appointment online and need to make a change or cancel it, you can do it by notifying me via email (FortuneFertility@yahoo.com). Sometimes I experience difficulty keeping the online scheduling up-to-date. If your appointment made online needs to be rescheduled due to a scheduling conflict, I will contact you via email.

2.  Download, fill out, and bring the following forms to your initial visit.             

Forms:
GeneralInfo.pdf

TCMInfo.pdf
FertilityInfo.pdf (females only)
MaleFertilityInfo.doc (males only)
Copy of your BBT charts (females only)*

If you have a trouble printing the forms and want us to send you the forms by mail, please email me (FortuneFertility@yahoo.com) with your mailing address and short description of your condition.

The best way to reach me is to write me an email. You may get the answering machine most of time since I do not answer the phone when I am seeing a patient. I usually reply your email within a few hours.

*BBT Charts

The sooner I see your BBT chart the more effectively I can treat your condition. I am not trying to see if you are ovulating or not from the chart. Your daily temperature change can reveal very important information about what's going on in your body. I need to find out the status and stability of your reproductive hormones through the chart. It can give me information on your ovaries, uterus lining, quality of eggs, etc. 

If you want to know how to measure your BBT, please read this. To print out a blank chart so you can complete it manually, click here and print it out. To view an example of BBT charting, click here.

 If you have not checked your BBT yet, start doing it as soon as possible. 

What To Do and What Not To Do on the day of your visit

1.  Make sure you are not hungry or too full.
2.  Do not scrape or brush your tongue. Reading and examining a tongue (coating, color, etc.) is an important TCM diagnostic procedure. Do not drink a coffee or eat food (candy, etc.) that can change the color of your tongue.
3.  Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Payment and Cancellation Policies 

Payment is by check or cash only. There is no installment plan available. There will be no refund if you decide not to continue the treatment. There is a $35 charge for a returned check and your subsequent payments must be cash.  

If you must cancel your appointment, you have to email me or call me before 6:00 pm the day before your appointment. Otherwise, you will be charged in full for your cancelled appointment. Exceptions can be made for medical emergencies.
