Patient Support

Enjoy a superior patient treatment experience

Some infertility clinics take an impersonal “assembly line approach” to treating infertility. At the Northwest Center for Reproductive Sciences, we foster close caring relationships with our patients from diagnosis and treatment through to success. Our aim is to tailor our treatment plan to each patient’s need.

How do we provide the highest possible quality medical care? We work closely with our patients through face-to-face dialog to formulate individualized treatment plans in a calm, supportive environment.

We understand the emotional aspects of infertility

Most people simply take it for granted that they have the ability to have children. The reality is that approximately 15% of couples will experience problems in trying to have a baby.

People are often shocked when they discover that they are infertile and commonly go through a period of disbelief. Others rush into treatment without first coming to terms with the diagnosis.

We understand the emotional aspects of infertility and encourage our patients to address their emotional and relationship issues as they receive infertility treatment from us.

Infertility and women

Women may feel a sense of frustration or even anger at not being able to have children. They may also have feelings of guilt, regarding their infertility as punishment for putting their career first, using contraception, or for a previous termination. These widely reported feelings are understandable; however, learning to deal with them in a constructive manner is an important part of infertility treatment.

Infertility and men

Many infertility treatments focus on women, which can leave men feeling left out of the process. If the couple’s infertility is due to a sperm dysfunction, the man may feel that his impotency means he is lacking in masculinity, in turn increasing his feeling of isolation. Men, too, may need help in dealing with their feelings as they embark on infertility treatment with a partner.
