The emotional stress of infertility can be overwhelming. The physicians and infertility nurses are all very experienced in providing ongoing emotional and educational support and guidance for couples going through infertility evaluation and treatment. Acupuncture and guided imagery are available as techniques for stress reduction. In addition, we work closely with psychiatrists and mental health nurses for patients who may benefit from their services.
