Schedule the Appropriate Visit to Address Your Concerns

Annual gynecology exams are intended to provide preventative health care services. This typically updating/reviewing your medical, social and family history, a thorough physical and gynecologic exam, Pap smear, screening for genetically-linked cancer syndromes, discussing birth control options/family planning, and often drawing your blood for routine screening such as cholesterol. This is not the type of visit to schedule if you have problems/concerns.

Concern-driven visits are intended to address specific concerns or problems you may be having, including concerns about your hormone levels, thyroid, generalized fatigue, weight gain, painful intercourse, recurrent vaginal discharge, low libido, and incontinence (just to name a few).

Addressing your concerns

We would love to have the time to address every concern AND complete your annual exam, however, it is just not possible to do this in a manner that will provide you with the best possible care. For this

reason, we strongly encourage you to prioritize your needs when scheduling appointments, which often means scheduling a separate visit on a different day for preventative services.

  • Our practice is different than most Ob/Gyn providers in the area. We devote a full 30 minutes to each appointment type so we have the extra time to develop a comprehensive plan for your healthcare needs.

Bring test results with you to discuss with our providers.

If you would like our providers to address specific test results (i.e. lab results, imaging studies) or records from another physician, please bring a copy of the result to your visit. Our staff can request a copy of the test result, but it takes time for us to receive it. If you don’t bring a copy of the test result with you, then you will need to make another appointment to review the result after the provider has had time to analyze the findings.

Information for New Patients

how to prepare for your visit

All routine gynecological appointments are performed by Board Certified Physicians and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners.

What you should know

Please bring your medical records with you if you have a copy of these. We advise our patients to create a patient account prior to your visit and to complete your medical profile in advance. Prior to your visit, it’s important to also know what your insurance policy entails.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4
Step 1

medical records

We are often asked if you need to obtain a copy of your medical record? If you do not have any prior issues that you were treated for or any test results that you would like us to see, it is usually not necessary to obtain records. If you have had abnormal test results in the past, or any history with gynecological issues, please arrange to have your medical records forwarded to our office BEFORE your first visit, but only after you have made an appointment. Call us with any questions regarding transfer of your medical records.

Step 2

Complete Your Medical Profile In Advance of Your Visit

Amy Brenner MD & Associates are committed to offering the very latest in technology, both in medical care and in managing patient information to ensure privacy, security, and ease of use. We use a secure online EMR (electronic medical record), that allows patients to complete paperwork in the comfort of your own home before coming to the office.

Step 3

create a patient account

(This is a complimentary secure feature that will allow you to update information, access your medical records, and communicate with our providers) ideally 3 days before your office appointment. We will email you a history form to print out and complete, please bring the completed form to your visit. If you are unable to take advantage of this option, please come to the office 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you can enter your medical history and be ready to be seen at your appointment time. BE SURE TO BRING YOUR PHOTO ID AND INSURANCE CARD WITH YOU!

Step 4

Know your Insurance Policy

Know Your Insurance Policy: Amy Brenner MD & Associates are very knowledgeable of the most common insurance plans. With that being said, it is not feasible for our staff to know your specific plan inside and out. It is up to you to know your co-pays, deductible, and what kind of visits are covered. If in doubt, call your insurance carrier before making an appointment.

You are expected to pay your co-pays and/or deductibles at time of service. If we are unable to verify your benefits, a deposit will be charged for that visit that will be reimbursed at such time that we receive payment from your insurance carrier. This is why it is important to be informed on your insurance benefits prior to making your appointment.

Testimonials Videos FAQ's

"I have been a patient of Dr. Amy Brenner & Associates since before she went into private practice. I was one of her first patients after receiving her MD license and will be for life. She and her staff are caring, compassionate, and friendly. They are an all-star staff and I have sent so many new patients to them (even my own primary care CNP). Keep up the great job."

"I first came to see Dr. Brenner because I was having an incontinence problem. After explaining to me why I was having the problem, she gave me information to study and helped me through the process to decide which options would be best for me. She took the time to answer all of my questions with kindness and concern. We decided on a prolapse surgery, which has been life-changing. I can now enjoy long walks, exercising, running around with grandchildren, and horseback riding. I can go shopping without checking out the store first to see where the bathroom is. Life is good!!! My most sincere thanks goes to Dr. Brenner, her staff, and the staff at Mercy Fairfield for helping me have such a positive life-changing experience. I feel blessed to have Dr. Brenner as my doctor and go forward in life with confidence knowing that she will be with me to manage my gyn care."

R. Shupe

"Choosing Dr. Amy Brenner as a physician is one of the wisest decisions a woman can make. Dr. Brenner is the rare physician who listens and answers what you ask, rather than what she anticipates you will ask. She encourages you to be an active participant in your care. I have been Dr. Brenner’s patient since 2000 and have not once left her office feeling frustrated or negative about my experiences with her. I recently had to make a decision regarding a surgical procedure. Dr. Brenner reviewed the options with me and gave me the information I needed to determine which route to take. Before making a final decision, I had a couple of questions and she replied to my e-mail promptly and personally. You can’t go wrong by trusting Dr. Brenner."
