Advanced Fetal Care Center (AFCC)
Most new patients come to the AFCC when routine tests have indicated a problem with your unborn fetus. You may have been referred by your physician, or you can contact our center directly at 617-355-3896 or 1-866-FETALCARE, or by requesting an appointment online.
We understand the anxiety many families feel when contacting us. From the first telephone conversation, we strive to provide helpful, informative and compassionate support. We want to know your concerns and find out how much information you have about your fetus's health. We'll answer your questions and share our knowledge based on our experience and the most current data.
During the initial telephone intake, our administrative associate will obtain relevant information from you including referring physician and insurance information. You or your obstetrician will be asked to fax medical information to us for review: 617-730-0302.
A member of the AFCC team will review all information and contact you to obtain additional history, assess your understanding of the health problem, answer your questions and offer support and reassurance. Additionally, they will coordinate all appropriate diagnostic testing and counseling sessions.
Every attempt will be made to schedule imaging studies and appointments in a timely fashion to best meet the needs of our patients during this difficult time. Some appointments will require special diagnostic testing including ultrasound, MRI, or echocardiogram based on the fetal diagnosis, or suspected diagnosis. Find out more.
