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.

From being a patient to becoming a employee I empathize with each patient and what they are going through. I hope that my story gives our patients hope that it will happen.

Dear SpringCreek Family and Friends:

Unfortunately, COVID cases are on the rise.

As of August 5, here are the updated COVID guidelines:

  • Regardless of vaccination status, everyone must wear a mask inside the building.
  • Patients can no longer bring a support person, except for retrievals, transfers (recovery room only), and OB scans.
  • We are not allowing children in the office at this time.
  • Temperature and COVID status should be reported for each SpringCreek associate, patient, and visitor.
  • Patients should remain in their car until a SpringCreek associate calls them in for their appointment. The check-in person will call patients in accordance with appointment times while maintaining appropriate spacing in the waiting room and based on the needs of the office. Please contact our office for special arrangements, as there is limited capacity in the waiting room.

SpringCreek Fertility will continue to revise our policy to ensure we are parallel to the CDC recommendations.

Feel free to call our office at 937-458-5084 if you have any questions or concerns.

We are here for you!
