Reproductive Endocrinology and Fertility Care

When you are facing infertility issues, the future can seem uncertain and the challenges significant. Our staff realizes this. We approach infertility treatment not just with an understanding of the science, but also with compassion for what you are experiencing. At Rochester Fertility Care, you will find knowledgeable and compassionate doctors and nurses to care for you. In addition, our physicians provide you with 24/7 access to their expertise and counseling to answer your questions and concerns.

Highly Sought After Expertise

Rochester Fertility Care welcomes patients from both the local area and the wider Upstate New York region. Our board certified reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialists have been providing scientifically backed medical treatment with superior outcomes since 1988.

State-of-the-art Treatments

Whether you are working through female infertility or male infertility issues— or both— we are skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of reproductive endocrinology and infertility conditions. The full range of reproductive treatments is available at Rochester Fertility Care. Fertility medications, insemination, minimally invasive or other surgery and assisted reproductive technologies can all be prescribed and carried out.

Each treatment approach is individually tailored based on the results of the evaluation. Appropriate evaluations include blood work to check a woman’s egg adequacy, semen analysis, and imaging to check anatomy.

For those who are concerned about a genetic disease or being at risk for fetal aneuploidy, an abnormal number of chromosomes, we perform embryo biopsies to test for gene abnormalities. An embryo biopsy is also an option for those interested in sex selection.

Other treatments include fertility drugs to aid ovulation, semen analysis and sperm freezing, preconception consultations, and fertility treatment for same sex couples.

Convenient on-site Support Services

As well as seeing our reproductive endocrinologists and infertility specialists at our Unity Hospital campus, you also have the benefit of all lab work, radiology tests, procedures, and surgeries performed on site. With all infertility testing and treatments provided at a single location, you receive continuity of care—and added convenience that makes infertility treatment easier.
