The Center For Reproductive Medicine and Fertility has been providing a high level of care for infertile couples since 1985. As a "one physician" office, we are able to personalize patient care in a friendly, caring environment. Our practice is able to provide such technology complex treatments as In-Vitro Fertilization, Oocyte Donation, Embryo Cryo preservation, Intro-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection, Assisted Zona Hatching and a Gestational Carrier Program. While all of these techniques are readily available, clearly, most infertile couples do not require these complex approaches to therapy and can be helped with relatively simple office based procedures.
Our practice philosophy is to help couples achieve pregnancy as quickly and simply as possible. Our staff is friendly, experienced and extremely knowledgeable concerning all aspects of caring for couples involved in treatment. We try our very best to provide the support, education, and kindness needed to get through this process. We strive to know our patients as individuals so that we can individualize the care we provide. Achieving success is unquestionably a team effort and we do our very best to give all that is necessary to succeed.
We are proud of our staff and our many successes over the years. We look forward to working with you toward achieving your goal in a friendly, optimistic and personal environment.
