We understand that infertility is often a private struggle. Unlike looking for an auto repair shop, or even a general practice doctor, most couples have no one in their lives whom they can ask for a fertility clinic referral. At SpringCreek Fertility in the Columbus, OH area, we do not want you to feel lost or alone as you begin your search for the right reproductive assistance.
In this article, the fertility experts at SpringCreek in the greater Columbus, OH area explain what you should look for when choosing the fertility clinic that is right for your unique reproductive needs.
Don’t Pick a Fertility Clinic Just By Location
While location is a factor, it shouldn’t be the only factor in your selection. While choosing a fertility clinic across the country doesn’t make sense – driving an extra hour or two to be treated by a top-of-their-field fertility expert does make a lot of sense.
In other words, the closest is not always the best. You are not only investing a substantial amount of money – but you are also putting your hopes and dreams for a family in the hands of the fertility clinic you choose. Choosing by credentials rather than proximity is truly the best investment in your family planning.
Pick a Clinic with Board Certified Doctors
You should only trust your fertility treatments to a facility with board-certified reproductive endocrinologists. This is truly a non-negotiable when ensuring the best chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.
At SpringCreek Fertility Clinic in the Columbus, OH area our medical director and managing partner Dr. Jeremy Groll is double-board-certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Obstetrics and Gynecology – as is our physician Dr. Amy Kohlmeier.
Board certification from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology requires the completion of four years of training, plus two years in clinical practice. And subspecialty board certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility means that the doctor has also completed significant additional training in the latest and most advanced reproductive medicine technologies.
Look at the Fertility Clinic’s Professional Memberships
A fertility clinic that is truly dedicated to its patient’s reproductive success will participate in the professional organizations that ensure the highest standard of care and the most advanced reproductive technologies.
