Specialty highlights

Personalized, comprehensive care
In addition to our team of board-certified reproductive endocrinologists, our experienced staff includes nurses, nurse practitioners, embryologists, psychologists and patient counselors who specialize in the issues related to infertility. Our team approach means we take the time to get to know you and we tailor a treatment plan to address your specific goals and needs. We pride ourselves in working with people who may have undergone previous treatment strategies or those who may have been told they have a minimal chance of success.

Convenient, one-stop care
Our main clinic, the Reproductive Medicine Center, provides for all your fertility needs in one location. Services available on-site include a laboratory for testing, surgical services for minimally invasive surgical services, and psychological testing and counseling.

Outstanding outcomes
We take pride that our pregnancy success rates rank high among infertility clinics across the nation. The percentage of IVF cycles resulting in live births at Reproductive Medicine Center is 49.7 percent for women under 35 – more than 10 percentage points higher than the national average of 39.6 percent.* In addition, our lab management team is board-certified by the College of American Pathologists Reproductive Laboratory Accreditation Program.

Cost-efficient care
We understand that financial considerations play a significant role as couples decide whether or not to pursue infertility treatments. With that concern in mind, we excel in delivering high-quality care while keeping a continual eye on limiting extra costs. We encourage all couples to meet with our financial counselor to review fees and to discuss insurance coverage benefits and financing options. For couples who do not have infertility insurance benefits, we’ve created a Fertility Cost Share Program that allows, for a fixed fee, up to three egg retrievals. If a successful pregnancy is not achieved, up to 80 percent of the program fee will be refunded.
