About

Bio

I am the father of seven children, ages 36-8. I have been blessed and hope to share this blessing with every patient I see. I enjoy, golf, yoga, sailing, and my family. I have been fortunate enough to help over 10,000 couples become parents. I did the first successful IVF, GIFT, and embryo cryo-preservation procedures in Indiana.
