The opportunity to help couples of reproductive age affected by infertility is the reason Dr. Marek W. Piekos chose to specialize in the field of reproductive endocrinology.

"When I began my medical training in Europe, I had many options to select from when choosing my specialty.  I chose to work with couples who have difficulty conceiving because they are very special and committed patients," according to Dr. Piekos.

"As specialists, we have trained for many years to treat only infertility.  We don't deliver babies or see routine gynecology patients."

"Often our patients have spent years trying to conceive.  The sooner they seek treatment, the better their chances."

"Our center is designed to evaluate infertility problems and begin treatment in a short period of time," says Piekos.  "Time is an important resource that infertile couples cannot afford to waste."

According to Dr. Piekos, "One of the greatest challenges medical specialists face is the ability to provide care that is convenient and affordable for patients."

Helping each patient reach their dream of a family, led Eduardo Sanz, B.S. into the field of Embryology in 1995.  Since then he has focused his efforts on learning new technologies and procedures, while specializing in micromanipulation techniques, leading to higher fertilization and pregnancy rates.

 

I feel a deep commitment to each patient who is intrusting us with their dream of having a baby.  Each patient receives individual treatment and I receive my greatest reward when I see the excitement on their faces as they proudly hold their new baby.

Dr. Schultz emphasizes the need for Preconception Counseling and Treatment. There are thousands of toxins in the environment today; it is estimated that the average newborn in the United States is born with over 300 toxins. Preconception detoxification testing and treatment can limit the toxin load which the fetus incurs in-utero. It is important to consider what is not to pass on to the baby during pregnancy and take action before conceiving.
