Referral Information for Physicians

At present patients are accepted for treatment by physician referral only. Letters of referral may be faxed to (403) 284-9293. For your convenience you may fill out our paper referral form. The usual wait for consultation is approximately six to eight weeks depending on the urgency of the referral. A confirmatory fax will be sent back to the referring physician’s office within a week of receipt of the referral.

All referrals are triaged and every effort will be made to ensure timely consultation of urgent referrals. Due to the time constraints inherent in urgent cases such as fertility preservation, we strive to accommodate most requests for consultation within a few days. Please contact us directly or fax an urgent request to our clinic at (403) 284-9293.

Couples living a long distance from Calgary can  have a remote set-up for IVF treatment. This entails a telephone consultation with one of the IVF physicians and subsequent pre-IVF testing at their home centre. For these couples who undergo a remote set-up it is not necessary for them to attend an “IVF information session” prior to initiation of treatment. Our IVF information on-line video seminar  can provide the appropriate information . Unfortunately, due to medical/legal coverage only Canadian residents can be accepted for treatment at the Regional Fertility Program.
