Please explain how you would coordinate my care with my OB/GYN.


Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a treatment that requires open communication between the patient, her interventional radiologist and her OB/GYN. To accommodate the patient’s needs and to make it as easy as possible for everyone involved, this is how Dr. Slonim coordinates care with her patients’ OB/GYNs.

“Usually if that question is being asked, it means that the OB/GYN has sent you to me. So after I meet you, and hear what the issues are, do a physical exam and evaluate if you’re a good candidate for the UFE procedure, I’ll then either send a consultation note, or get on the phone and talk to your OB/GYN and discuss the issues of the case, and how the decision is made of whether to proceed with the UFE procedure, or something else.”
