Out of Town Patients

  • Consultations by video conference
  • Web-based teaching tools
  • Secure video conferencing for patients in Northern Ontario, Nunavut, and Newfoundland

Consultations by Video Conference (Residents of Ontario, Newfoundland, and Nunavut only)

We can arrange for a consultation by video conference using the Ontario Telemedicine Network if you reside more than 150 kilometers from the OFC. This service is provided for free. If you prefer to travel to Ottawa for your first consultation, we will make arrangements for completion of some or all of your testing within the same trip.

Phone Consultations

Patients can have an initial consultation by phone. However, OHIP does not cover the costs and you will be billed in advance for telephone appointments. If you do wish to have a telephone consultation, please let us know when we contact you to arrange your initial appointment.

Newfoundland Patients

The Ottawa Fertility Centre and the Newfoundland Fertility Clinic have been working together for the past two years to support patients through IVF. Patients are referred to the Ottawa Fertility Centre for treatment by Dr. O’Grady or Dr. Murphy of the Newfoundland Fertility Clinic. All preliminary testing and relevant results should be included in the referral for your fertility doctor in Ottawa. We will talk with you to determine the scope of the first consultation, which may also include a consent for IVF

Benefits for Newfoundland Patients

  • A dedicated physician to look after your care
  • Meet your physician using secure online video conferencing
  • A dedicated nurse who will oversee their care from the initial date of referral through to the last day of treatment
  • Online education tools to learn about IVF from home

Tips for Newfoundland Patients

  • Keep a centralized file of information for quick reference
  • Keep receipts for tax claim purposes
  • Obtain a doctor’s note from Newfoundland for travelling on a plane with needles
  • Visit our Contact Us page to get directions to the clinic
  • Don’t forget your drug insurance card
