Out of Town Patients
Many patients come to PNWF for care from outside of the Seattle Metropolitan area. Some are from smaller cities in Northwestern states and others travel farther - from the smallest towns in Alaska to large cities like Vancouver, British Columbia. No matter where patients call home we are always happy they find us.
Working with the patient's hometown care provider, or nearby women's health center, the PNWF team will collaborate with physicians, nurse practitioners, and other clinicians to maximize the quality of care while minimizing travel to Seattle.
During an IVF cycle much of the cycle monitoring can be done where our patients live. Our Seattle clinic stays in close contact with the out-of-town clinic, working together to offer each patient the best care possible.
Whether you are living outside the Seattle metropolitan area in Washington State, in Alaska , Montana, or in Western Canada, PNWF will coordinate your care long distance and work to deliver extraordinary care as if you were just down the street.
For more information about being a long-distance patient at PNWF, please speak to your IVF Coordinator or ask for a free 30-minute consultation when you call us.
My partner and I went to PNWF because of the positive stance they take on assisting the LGBT community build families. Our primary provider is wonderful. From the get-go, the doctor made us feel comfortable, she took the time to answer all of our questions, and it felt like we were friends talking about fertility treatment, not numbers on a chart. Our doctor, over the course of our treatment, really got to know our personalities too, which was great. I prefer scientific explanations and my partner prefers brief, "give me the short version" explanations. I mention this because the fact that she got to know us in that way really made us feel like she cared about us personally as well as the outcome of our treatment and our family.
