How a PHR can help you get a second opinion !

A common problem we have encountered in our practise is that many infertile patients are reluctant to change doctors, even when they are very unhappy with their present doctor. Often this is because they prefer being passive and refuse to take matters in their own hands - "better the known devil than the unknown one". Some feel that their present doctor knows all their medical details, even though he may not be very competent, and they do not want to take the time and trouble to explain their problem all over again to a new doctor. They often don't even have copies of their medical tests and treatments, because many doctors refuse to give these to patients ( so that they can "hold on" to their patients.) Unfortunately, this passive attitude means that you are depriving yourself of getting the best medical care, and reducing your chances of conceiving.

The Infertility PHR can help you empower yourself !

Get a second opinion - this can never hurt and is always helpful. If you find two experts saying the same thing then you know you are on the right track.

The Infertility PHR can help you with getting a second opinion because you can print out and email a summary of your medical records to the specialist, so that it becomes much easier for the consultant to review your tests and treatment. Well-organised medical records help the doctor to review what you've done in the past, so he can formulate an effective treatment plan and help you move forward !
