About

Bio

Arizona Center for Fertility Studies was founded in 1982 with a commitment to the successful evaluation and treatment of infertility, as well as to the emotional well being of couples and individuals. Some say that infertility cannot be overcome. At Arizona Center for Fertility Studies, we are committed to your vision of having children become a reality. The clinic embraces all patients, regardless of age, marital status and gender preference. What speaks far louder than the words of our commitment to you are the more than 8000 babies born to our patients. Today, the Center stands at the leading edge of fertility studies and scientific research. Arizona Center for Fertility Studies continues to strive for new breakthroughs in the field of reproductive medicine by staying in the forefront of state-of-the-art techniques. This also supports us in offering you accurate information and the emotional support you need. Couples seeking to have children are often confused by the barrage of complex language and statistics that surround treatment. Yet, with the rapidly expanding options available, there is much to be gained from persistence in asking the right questions and demanding the answers that you can understand. In fact, we believe that with up to date technology and a clear understanding of your goal, pregnancy is now possible for more couples than ever before. In summary, commitment is the stuff character is made of, the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism. Each of us at the Arizona Center for Fertility Studies is totally committed to your rights as a patient, as individuals and as a person trying to create a fundamental right . . . life. All we are given is possibilities and my commitment is to the possibility.
