As the husband of a gestational carrier, I was enlightened on the struggles of infertility. Having children of my own, I knew the joy they bring. I wanted to help bring those blessings to others. I love knowing that I am an integral part of helping people achieve their goals of becoming parents.

My husband and I were patients of Dr. Groll. We could not be more appreciative of him and his staff. They made our dreams into a reality. When I saw the chance to work with this wonderful family, I knew I had to apply. I love being able to give of myself to those going through fertility and, even more, I love seeing all the patient successes.
