We Are Here for You
We offer three decades of experience evaluating patients with the full spectrum of fertility issues.
Our specialists are here to provide you answers, help and hope for fertility needs that include:
- Difficulty with conceiving
- Recurrent pregnancy loss (miscarriages)
- Unsuccessful treatment at other fertility clinics
- Male factor infertility (infertility caused by male reproductive health issues)
- Fertility preservation before cancer treatment and other medical treatments that affect fertility
- Fertility preservation when delaying starting a family
- Complex endocrinology conditions and malformations of the reproductive system that others don’t treat
What to Expect at Your First Visit
The first step in helping you build your family is to gather the information needed to determine the cause of your infertility.
During your initial consultation, you will meet with one of our fellowship-trained, board-certified reproductive endocrinology specialists. Your visit will include:
- A review of prior medical records
- A detailed medical history
- A physical exam
- A 3D ultrasound – to evaluate your uterus and ovaries, including your small follicle count (a measure of your remaining egg supply or “ovarian reserve”), the position of the uterus, and the presence of fibroids
- Lab work – including your AMH level (anti-müllerian hormone), an indicator of your ovarian reserve
- A referral for a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) – an X-ray performed by our specialists and a radiologist to check for blockage in your fallopian tubes
- Scheduling an appointment for semen (sperm) analysis – if a male partner is involved
Providing Answers, Hope and Personalized Treatment
Our comprehensive approach provides critical insight into three key factors that impact fertility:
- The health of your uterus and reproductive tract
- Your ovarian reserve (egg supply)
- Your partner’s sperm (or donor sperm)
After evaluating all of your information and test results, your reproductive endocrinologist will meet with you and outline your diagnosis and treatment options. Together, you will determine a plan of care that best meets your medical, financial and personal needs, optimizing your chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.
