Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Offers Virtual Physician Consults, Reducing Stress and Increasing Access to Care for People in Need of Fertility Treatment
Washington, D.C. - Shady Grove Fertility (SGF)—home to more than 85,000 babies born—now offers new and current patients uninterrupted access to board certified fertility specialists through virtual physician consults, thereby minimizing interruptions in access to fertility care during this pandemic and beyond.
“One the hallmarks of SGF over its 29 year history has always been to improve access to care. We’re pleased to be able to offer patients the ability to consult with their physician and continue their care in a virtual setting by providing local and long-distance virtual consultations wherever they are,” shared Eric A. Widra, M.D., SGF Chief Medical Officer.
SGF’s telemedicine program makes it easier for fertility patients to navigate their fertility journey and use this time to progress toward building their family. Virtual consults also reduce time away from work and other commitments, reduce travel time and expense, and increase convenience as both partners can attend virtually from any location.
Through the use of a secured online portal, patients and physicians will share private access to medical records, informed consent documents, patient instructions, educational videos, and much more.
“During these uncertain times, now more than ever, patients need our support and to regain a sense of control. By connecting virtually with their physician, we can put time back on our side and take advantage of this easy to use platform to communicate with patients and help them make progress toward their dream of building a family,” adds Widra.
