Fertility and Reproductive Health

Recent studies reveal that as many as 15% of couples in the U.S. are considered infertile — that is, they are unable to conceive a child after one year of unprotected intercourse.

While infertility may have complicated, sometimes multiple physical causes, it can also exact an emotional toll. Couples having difficulty conceiving a child can now look to us for one of the nation's most comprehensive and progressive treatment programs.
