Edward, 38 and Amanda, 37
Amanda and Edward, both in their mid-30s, were attempting to start a family. They were thrilled to conceive almost immediately. However, Amanda suffered from an ectopic pregnancy during her first trimester. Amanda needed to undergo surgery to remove her damaged fallopian tube.
Aware that Amanda's surgery could be an impediment to normal pregnancies in the future, she and her husband considered in vitro fertilization. They began searching the Internet to decipher the statistics and success rates of fertility clinics in the Boston area. Upon calling to make an appointment at a local fertility clinic recommended by a friend, she learned there was a three-month waitlist.
Summus provided Amanda and Edward access to the Director of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at a world-renowned fertility center in less than 48 hours.
One hour after contacting Summus, Amanda and Edward's dedicated Summus MD led an efficient and comprehensive intake call to gain a deep understanding of their case. Later that day, their Summus MD helped collect Amanda's pertinent medical records.
After synthesizing Amanda's medical history, their Summus MD suggested the couple consult with a reproductive endocrinologist in academic medicine for insight into next steps and potential treatment options. She provided a thoughtfully curated list of physicians based on the precise nature of Amanda's case.
Amanda and Edward reviewed their physician matches with their Summus MD and chose to speak with the Director of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at a world-renowned fertility center in North Carolina. A leading academic, he is the author of hundreds of research studies and medical publications, including the seminal textbook on reproductive medicine and surgery.
Summus coordinated the scheduling and arranged a consultation for the next day.
Amanda and Edward engaged in a comprehensive, 45-minute videoconference from their home in Boston.
