* Named 2009 Best Doctors for Women
The science of infertility can be explained in medical textbooks, but the daily human struggle that accompanies the nearly limitless desire for reproduction is a more complicated side of the story, one that is understood all too well by the physicians of The Center for Reproductive Medicine.
“The infertile couple is experiencing a great deal of personal, emotional, and financial stress,” says Dr. John Malo. “We pay special attention to all aspects of our couples’ care.”
The four physicians at The Center for Reproductive Medicine—Bruce Campbell, Lisa Erickson, John Malo, and Paul Kuneck—are warm, empathetic, nonjudgmental, respectful, and collaborative. They listen carefully, respond thoughtfully, and help couples navigate the rollercoaster ride of infertility.
“It’s not a job; it’s a mission,” says Dr. Lisa Erickson. “And every person here is committed to that mission: providing patients with the care they need while trying to build a family.”
One of the biggest false impressions is that stress causes infertility, and if couples just relax, they’ll get pregnant.
“Being infertile is no more natural than appendicitis,” says Dr. Malo. “Infertile couples have every right to receive the same attentive medical care as they would for any other serious medical problem.”
The truth is that every generation is delaying their childbearing even later than the previous generation, which means more and more patients are seeking the services of CRM.
“The peak age for reproduction is 24. Eggs have an expiration date. If you’re over 35 and want children, run, don’t walk, directly to reproductive specialists,” Dr. Erickson comments.
The doctors at The Center for Reproductive Medicine offer a comprehensive menu of treatment options and testing including state-of-the-art advanced procedures such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Donor Egg IVF to help improve the odds of conception.
As the largest fertility clinic in the state, the secret to their success is simple.
According to Dr. Bruce Campbell, “We commit ourselves to providing the best care and treatment for every patient we see.”
