Your first visit

We try to make your first visit as stress-free as we can. On occasion we might incorporate an initial physical exam, but most often we’re simply interested in learning more about you, your history and answering any questions you might have. This initial meeting will likely last for one hour. If you are still on the fence and are not ready to commit to a full evaluation, we offer a free 15 minute assessment, which you can read more about here.


To better prepare for your first visit, here is a list of suggestions

  • Bring any medical records you currently possess – these aren’t mandatory for the first visit but helpful if you can access them. If you don’t have them, perhaps now is a good time to request them from any previous providers.
  • In reviewing your records, we’ll discuss your full medical history, so come prepared to discuss this, even if you do not have records with you.
  • It is best for both partners to attend as our goal is to develop a ‘game plan for success’ and answer questions you both might have.
  • It is best to get a babysitter rather than to have distractions at this first visit.
  • A written list of questions you may have will help ensure we are able to provide answers to all your concerns.
  • To save you time in the office, we have some forms you can fill out prior to your first visit:

    Northwest Fertility Center Registration_form
    Northwest Fertility Center Records Release form
    HIPAA Consent Form

BoasefamilyIt has been 8 months since our beautiful little boy was born and we still talk about how much we love Dr. Stoelk and his staff. I simply can’t say enough wonderful things about Northwest Fertility and our experience. From the first phone call to their office, to our first meeting with Dr. Stoelk, to our last ultrasound, I was blown away by their sincerity, optimism, professionalism, expertise, confidence, and dedication to my husband and I’s future family. After a few appointments, Dr. Stoelk found the perfect treatment for us. We went from being terrified that kids may not be in our future (due to negativity from other doctors) to being blessed with our sweet Lincoln in just 5 months.

This was easily the absolute best experience I have ever had in a doctor’s office. I have already recommended him to many of my friends and will continue to do so. It just doesn’t get any better that this staff. Thank you so much, Dr. Stoelk. You have a very special place in our hearts.

Jordan, Bailey and Lincoln Boase
