WCFC Patient Fill-In Form Instructions
West Coast Fertility Center fill-in PDF forms use the features provided with Adobe Acrobat products. Currently, there is no computation, validation or verification of the information you enter and you are still responsible for entering all required information, except your signature.
To view, complete and print FCC fill-in PDF forms you'll need the freely available Adobe Reader software installed on your computer. The fill-in forms are enabled with "document rights", which allow you to save what you have filled in on your PC. Version 6.05 or later of Adobe Reader is required.
Opening the Form
Your web browser may be configured with an Adobe Reader plug-in to automatically open the file within your browser's window upon download. To download the file directly to disk, click on "File" in your menu, then select "Save As..." from the menu and save it to your hard drive. Use Adobe Reader to open the file. Then complete the forms and hit "save" again.
Fill-in forms with the ability to save locally will generate a dialog box when opened with Adobe Reader. If you are using Adobe Reader 6.05 or later, the dialog box will indicate that document rights have been applied to the PDF file and you can save the completed fill-in form. If you are using a version of Adobe Reader prior to Version 6.05, the dialog box will indicate that some features of the document will not operate and you will be prompted to obtain a newer version of Adobe Reader.
Completing the Form
When positioning the cursor on a fill-in area or element, the cursor will change appearance. The I-beam pointer allows you to type text. The hand pointer allows you to select a check box.
Enter the appropriate data in each box or field. To move from one field to the next, press the Tab key. You can also use your cursor to move from field to field. Place your cursor in the field you want to fill in, then left-click.
Some fields limit the maximum number of characters you can enter and may automatically advance to the next field.
Submitting the Form
You have two options:
1. After saving the form to your hard drive, and using Adobe Reader to open and fill-in the registration form, you can save the file and send it as an attachment to the Patient Coordinator via email at.
2. After saving the form to your hard drive, and using Adobe Reader to open and fill-in the registration form, you can print the completed form and bring it with you to your appointment.
