What To Expect At Your Appointment

 
Appointments are available Monday through Saturday and can be scheduled by phone.

Though Texas State laws make getting an abortion more complicated than is medically necessary, we fully comply with all state regulations. Texas abortion laws require you to have an Abortion Consultation 24 hours before your abortion procedure.

To schedule an Abortion Consultation please submit the following form. Within 48 hours you will receive two emails: confirmation of your appointment date and time, and an email with a link to our secure Patient Portal. Please call our office if you have additional questions about appointment scheduling.

 

Schedule an Appointment

  • Please set aside 2-3 hours for your abortion consultation as this appointment includes all preoperative steps: ultrasound, labwork, and counseling. We will do our best to schedule an appointment as close to your preferred time as possible.
  • example: 10.1 weeks or 12/15/17
  • The cost of the abortion consultation is $100 for selfpay/uninsured patients. If using insurance, please call to give your insurance information at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. If interested in financial assistance please call our office to complete a screening questionnaire. In most cases, financial assistance can only be used towards the cost of the abortion, not the abortion consultation.
  • We will call to schedule your appointment during our regular business hours: Monday - Saturday, 8:00a - 5:30p

Patient forms can be completed online through our Patient Portal. When scheduling your appointment, please provide our staff with a valid email address. You will receive an email with a link to an encrypted and secure web portal. There you can create your account and fill out ALL the forms available to you before your appointment.

 

Abortion Process- What to Expect

 
It may be comforting to discuss the procedure prior to coming in for your appointment, we encourage you to call us with any questions. You are also welcome to visit our office ahead of time to become familiar with our location and staff.

Your procedure will require three* separate office visits to accomplished the following:

  • An ultrasound to determine the length of your pregnancy
  • Lab work to measure iron levels and determine blood type
  • Documentation of vital signs
  • Birth control education  and personal abortion counseling  to discuss your questions and feelings about the abortion
  • The abortion procedure and recovery time
  • We allow ONE (1) support person to accompany you on your visits. To protect the privacy of all our patients, escorts must present a photo ID and remain in the lobby.

*By Texas Law, a Medical Abortion requires three (3) separate office visits. (effective 3/30/2016)

After the procedure, our staff will monitor your recovery until you are ready to be discharged. Recovery usually takes about 20 – 30 minutes. At your discharge, we will explain all post-abortion care instructions and schedule your follow-up appointments.
