The team at Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health always looks for ways to reach out and educate the community about pregnancy and infertility. In addition to answering questions from patients that come into our fertility clinic locations in Scottsdale and Gilbert, AZ, we also try to use our social media presence and public appearances to spread knowledge and empower would-be parents.
Not too long ago, Dr. Ketan S. Patel appeared on Sonoran Living to go over some of the basics regarding infertility and when to seek the help of a professional. We encourage you to watch the TV appearance in full, though we’ll go over some of the highlights and takeaways below.
Sonoran Living airs on ABC 15, the local affiliate based in Phoenix. The show shares helpful recipes, fashion and money-saving tips, and tips on how to getting the most out of daily living.
Speaking with host Terri Ouellette, Dr. Patel used his time on Sonoran Living to offer his expert insight into issues that matter to women trying to start a family.
Knowing when to see a fertility specialist is key, and timing can be everything. Dr. Patel provided a useful guideline for when to speak with a fertility doctor:
You notice that the timeframe is shorter for women 35 and older. This is for practical reasons. It ensures that women 35 and older seek professional help for infertility while they are still at a healthy age to have children.
Dr. Patel also discussed F.A.S.T. Fertility Testing, an interactive tool that allows patients to order fertility tests quickly and easily. Since Dr. Patel and our lab services are comprehensively contracted, the cost of F.A.S.T. Fertility Testing is covered by most insurance plans or available for an affordable flat fee. To start the process, patients just need to complete a simple questionnaire online.
By using the F.A.S.T. Fertility Testing tool, you can learn more about your fertility and get a better understanding of your treatment options.
Throughout the appearance on Sonoran Living, Dr. Patel shared some photos of actual patients of Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health. More specifically, these were pictures of patients with their families. The joy in those images speaks to the priority our team puts on our patients, their health, and their goals of building a beautiful family.
It’s one thing to have years of medical experience and a unique insight into the causes of infertility. It’s another thing entirely to meet someone face to face, talk about what they’re going through, and help them realize a dream.
That connection to the community, to people, is why we care so much about what we do.
