We are able to assist individuals who require outside monitoring services in the Lehigh Valley. Due to the needs of the RMA Lehigh Valley patients, outside monitoring services are available only for treatment cycle ultrasounds, early pregnancy ultrasounds, and typical hormonal blood work.
Outside monitoring patients are responsible to contact their insurance company to determine if RMA Lehigh Valley participates with their insurance. Our finance department will not be able to assist you with this information.

These services include basic semen analysis (sperm count, motility, and morphology using Kruger’s Strict Criteria), antisperm antibody screening, post-vasectomy semen analysis, and cryopreservation of sperm. All referral semen analysis patients must have a valid prescription from a physician.
All Andrology laboratory services are by appointment only. To schedule an analysis please call our office at 610-820-6888, option 2.
Appointment times are available Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 2:00 pm.
When calling to schedule an appointment, please have all personal information and insurance card readily available. A list of participating insurances is listed on the insurance page of our website. It is also important to mention all tests listed on your prescription by the requesting physician when scheduling an appointment to ensure our laboratory can meet your testing needs.
Please note: If your insurance normally requires you have a referral from your Primary Care Physician (PCP), to see a specialist, you will need to obtain a referral and have it sent to our office before your appointment. If you are required to have a referral but did not obtain one, your insurance does not cover the tests, or you do not have insurance, you will be required to pay in full the day the testing is performed.

Available Fertility Treatments
The purpose of Ovulation Induction is to produce multiple eggs to increase the likelihood of conception. For women who do not ovulate regularly, oral or injectable medications may be administered to support oocyte or egg development.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a type of artificial insemination that allows doctors to inject sperm directly into a woman’s uterine cavity during an optimal time of ovulation.
In Vitro Fertilization
In Vitro Fertilization, or IVF, is the procedure most commonly associated with fertility treatment. While not every patient is right or ready for IVF, it has been demonstrated to be a highly effective option for many.
Egg freezing allows you to press pause on your fertility. By freezing your eggs while they are still young and healthy, you can empower yourself to plan your future fertility your way.
