How you can prepare
The first step to becoming a patient is getting a referral from your family physician, obstetrician/gynecologist, midwife or other specialist. If you wish to be referred to CReATe for your fertility care, you can download a form that the referring doctor or midwife can fill out and send to us. Click here for a referral request letter.
Referrals can be faxed/sent to 416 323 7334 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once we receive your referral, new patients are given instructions on how to prepare for their initial consultation with a doctor. Those patients with partners should have them attend the initial consultation, if possible. This is important as we need to obtain their medical history and they will usually require some testing.
All individuals should bring their OHIP cards, if available. Upon receiving your referral, we will contact you within 24-48 hours to book your initial consultation and your appointment will usually be within 4-6 weeks. However, if you do not hear from us, then please follow up in case your request for an appointment was not received.
