Nursing Team

As a part of our personalized approach, you will interact with our entire nursing team but have one nurse whom will be primarily responsible for your care. She will review the plan your physician has outlined during your consultation making sure treatment instructions are clearly communicated and understood by all team members.

Your nurse will order and provide instructions and guidance on taking your medication. Our nurses also assist your physician during exams, tests and procedures. Nurses can be reached through the patient portal or by calling the nurses line to answer any questions you have during business hours.

You will have a dedicated portal to contact the staff to answer any non-urgent treatment and investigation related issues. Please leave a message if the phone is not answered immediately and a nurse will call you back by the end of the business day.

Administrative Team

Our administrative team is comprised of Receptionists, Medical Office Assistants, and a Financial Councillor.

Receptionists
Receptionists can help you schedule appointments; make copies of medical records and answer general office questions. You can reach our Receptionists by calling our main phone line 1-833-627-4732 or emailing reception@oasisfertility.com.

Medical Office Assistants
Medical Office Assistants support doctors and other health-care professionals by performing a wide variety of clerical and administrative tasks.

Financial Councillor
A Financial Councillor will be able to assist you in determining how much your treatment cycle is going to cost and what if anything is covered by the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP). Please feel free to contact our Financial Councillor with your questions or concerns through our main reception desk

Embryology Team

Over the last 30 years we have observed a significant improvement in pregnancy success which is largely due to advances in laboratory techniques. At Oasis, we have a state-of the-art-facility with highly trained and experienced embryologists. It is the embryologist who looks after your eggs once they are retrieved. This is the individual who will mix the egg and sperm together to create an embryo. If ICSI is required, it is the embryologist who will inject the sperm directly into the egg.

Functional Medicine

There are certain complimentary services which we believe can assist you in navigating your road to fertility. These include both acupuncture and massage.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese Medicine that uses very thin needles to stimulate the body’s meridians, thereby channeling energy. Depending upon where the needles are placed they can result in reducing stress, increasing or decreasing hormone levels and stimulate blood flow to certain parts of the body, such as the pelvis

At Oasis Fertility we believe that acupuncture can assist patients, particularly with their stress level when undergoing fertility treatment, and has been shown in some trials to significantly improve the results after fertility treatment.

Massage
Massage is another service which we believe can assist you while undergoing fertility treatment. Unfortunately, we know that stress can interfere with getting pregnant. It is well recognized that many individuals and couples suffer from stress while undergoing fertility treatment which is quite natural. Massage will help relax the body and ease emotional tension thereby reducing stress levels and has shown beneficial effects on fertility.
