What happens after we receive your referral?

Urgent Referral Patients

If you meet the definition of an urgent referral (i.e., imminent medical treatment that will jeopardize reproductive potential), we will see you within 24-48 hours.

New Patients

Once Ottawa Fertility Centre (OFC) receives your referral, you can expect:

1. We will review the referral information for completeness.

  • A request will be sent to your referring physician if any additional information is required.
  • We will also send your referring physician a letter confirming that we have accepted your referral.

2. We will triage your referral by level of urgency and create an OFC patient chart for you.

3. An email through DocuSign will be sent to your email address provided by your referring physician.

  • This email is your Privacy & Registration Consent for both you and your partner (if applicable).
  • It is necessary we receive these completed forms back before we can schedule an appointment.
  • Check your junk mail for this email.
  • The email includes an information sheet with next steps on how to book your appointment after completing your consents.

4. Upon our receipt of your completed consent forms, we will be ready to receive your phone call to schedule your new consultation appointment with one of our physicians.

Returning Patients

If it has been more than 2 years since we have last seen you, we require a new referral from your physician. Once we receive your referral, you can contact your OFC physician’s medical secretary to book an appointment.
