Given the COVID pandemic, the use of telehealth visits has quickly expanded. Telehealth visits are appointments with your medical provider that happen digitally over the internet, usually with either an audio or video connection or both. The use of telehealth has been shown in some medical specialties to be easy to use and liked by patients. However, how patients going through fertility testing and treatment may feel about telehealth visits during their uniquely personal journey is unknown. We hope to gather your feelings and thoughts on telehealth visits for fertility care through the following survey. Your responses to the survey will provide valuable information on how the fertility field can best serve you, our patients, in our changing healthcare climate and shed light on whether telehealth should continue moving forward. We thank you in advance for your time.

You are being asked to be in this research study because you have used telehealth visits for fertility treatment. If you join the study, you will complete the following survey.

This study is designed to learn more about patient satisfaction towards receiving fertility treatment via telehealth visits. Possible discomforts or risks include the time required to complete the survey. There may be risks the researchers have not thought of. This study is not designed to benefit you directly.

Every effort will be made to protect your privacy and confidentiality by not collecting any specific information about your fertility treatment or any personal identifying information.

You have a choice about being in this study. You do not have to be in this study if you do not want to be.
