How to prepare for your appointment?

A.  All patients will need to fill out their Patient Intake form prior to their appointment – please follow the steps below to do so.

1.  You will receive an appointment reminder from Patient Fusion 1 week and 1 day before your appointment. A link will be in that e-mail to set up a Patient Fusion account, please click on it and create an account.

2.  Once you have created an account go to the "Appointments" option on the left side.

3.  Go to "Complete Check-In" in blue under your listed appointments.

4.  Answer the following questions regarding your health history as accurately as possible. 

5.  Once you are finished review the information and select "Submit Information".

6.   Your Patient Intake form will be securely sent to your physician and your appointment check-in will be complete.

B.  If you are a NEW BHRT patient you will need to listen and complete the “Return of Passion - Prepare and Defend” audio download prior to your appointment. This can be found at the following link: Return of Passion – Prepare and Defend.

 

 

What does an appointment include?

This is a specialty practice with management of Bio-Identical Hormones and medical conditions associated with hormonal imbalance. We do not perform Well Woman Exams or Pap smears.  Those services can be obtained through your family doctor or an OB/GYN facility. In the near future, I will list OB/GYN facilities who are working closely with CyGYN.

 

How much does an appointment cost for a new BHRT patient?

A.  $500: The first visit will typically last 60 to 90 minutes. Allow for a 90 minute visit.

a.  You will be assessed and appropriate laboratory studies will be ordered.

b.  Most women prefer that hormone therapy is initiated at the first visit.

B.  $200: A return visit for follow up in 10 weeks is required. This will require 40 minutes.

a.  Pelvic examination (to assure hormones are being properly absorbed).

b.  Discussion of laboratory results.

c.   Change in hormone therapy, if necessary, based on test results.

C.  $200: A return visit five months after initiating the therapy is strongly recommended. Pelvic examination is generally not necessary at this visit.

 

How much does an appointment cost for an existing BHRT patient?

A.  $300: 60 minute Annual BHRT consultation and prescription renewal. If laboratory studies are required, those charges will be in addition to the consultation fee. At the present time CyGYN is negotiating prices for laboratory studies that cost less and will be more complete than what has been available in the past.

B.  $200: 20-40 minute follow up appointment. An additional appointment may be required to follow up laboratory studies. You will not need a follow-up appointment if the test results and hormone changes are very straightforward. In this case a new prescription would simply be sent to the pharmacy.

 

How many appointments will I need?

If you are doing well on your therapy and do not require testing, it will only be one consultation appointment each year.

 

Why are the appointments longer than they have been in the past?

The level of care and detail that we are able to provide is much greater in this practice. In the past, the time allotted for an appointment was based on the number of patients that needed to be seen in one day, to cover the expenses of the medical practice. Because we can provide individualized care and do not have to support a large number of staff, we are able to increase the length of time that we can devote to you AND decrease the total cost.

 

Why aren’t you filing my insurance?

As you know, there are daily advances in medicine. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to cover only minimal testing and care. We will no longer negotiate the quality of your care with insurance companies. We are establishing new concepts for insurance options. CyGYN will keep you updated.

 

What is a Juliet procedure?

Juliet vaginal rejuvenation is an in-office procedure that treats vaginal laxity by making the vagina ‘tighter’, better lubricated and does treat mild to moderate urine loss that is caused by physical activity. You may read more about the Juliet on this website, in the medical library.

 

What is an “O” shot?

This is an in-office medical procedure that can enhance sexual sensation and may improve urinary incontinence.

 

Can I use my FSA or HAS to cover charges?

You will need to check with your accountant to see if your plan will allow you to deduct the expense of consultation or treatment. CyGYN will issue you a statement of procedure and cost for you to submit.
