Fertility Care and COVID19: What You Should Know

Patient care and safety have always been the top priority here at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center. Our offices in Parker, Colorado, and Rapid City, South Dakota, are staffed with highly skilled medical professionals who are led by award-winning Reproductive Endocrinologist, Dr. Deborah Smith.

Our entire team is expertly trained in providing outstanding fertility care in a safe and welcoming environment that’s centered on your unique needs and circumstances. That same commitment drives the additional practices and procedures we’ve implemented, for your safety and ours, to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

Pre-appointment screening

Be prepared to answer a few simple questions about your overall health. We’ll ask about recent travel, symptoms you may be experiencing, and other factors that may affect your level of possible exposure to COVID-19.

Rest assured that the staff at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center, follows all appropriate safety guidelines during your visit, such as wearing masks, and other protective equipment, and our facilities are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized regularly.

Social distancing

We’re taking extra measures to maintain social distancing during your visits to our already open-and-airy facilities by limiting the number of patient appointments available at any given time, and social distancing in the waiting room.

Because timing is often critical during fertility care, we may schedule appointments based on your circumstances. This helps ensure that procedures continue in a timely manner throughout the course of your treatments.

We also take advantage of telehealth technologies for certain parts of your care, such as portions of your initial evaluation or other things that can be accomplished without you being physically present. You can expect the same personalized care we’re so well-known for, delivered in a convenient format that helps limit your risk of exposure.

Practicing common sense

It’s understandable that COVID-19 has caused anxiety and concern throughout our country’s population, including those who are considering fertility care. We take this virus seriously but want to reassure you that there are common sense guidelines we can all follow to limit the spread of COVID-19.

We recommend you follow the CDC guidelines regarding masks, social distancing, and handwashing. When necessary, our experts can also provide additional, science-driven reassurance regarding what you should know about COVID-19 and fertility treatments.
