Is your OB/GYN able to diagnose and treat all the problems that might be leading to your infertility?

Although many doctors have an interest in treating infertility and may deal with some aspects of infertility, they have not received special training or certification to do so. Women who think they may be infertile should be under the care of a trained reproductive endocrinologist, infertility specialist.

Drs. Bateman, Williams and Smith are fertility specialists located in Charlottesville, Virginia who have all completed a four year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and then were selected for a three year Fellowship (in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility) to become subspecialty trained in all female infertility issues.

Our fertility specialists also completed a written and oral exam for subspecialty certification-the highest level of competency achievable. They are the only three doctors in Charlottesville and the surrounding region who are trained and subspecialty certified to deal with all infertility issues.

Our fertility specialists are trained in all aspects of fertility care and have extensive experience. They are qualified to administer IVF cycles and our Charlottesville, VA IVF clinic produces success rates far exceeding the national averages.

They can also treat difficult conditions such as PCOS. Our fertility specialists also deliver “first level” care with agents such as Clomid and injectable FSH. Choosing a fertility specialist early in treatment ultimately results in higher success rates and lower infertility treatment costs.

It is also critical that the fertility clinic offering your care is open 7 days a week. Because testing and treatment follows a woman’s menstrual cycle, a clinic that is only open 5 days a week will miss 2 out of 7 (about 30%) of the important days.

This will reduce the chances for success, can lead to excessive costs for treatments that are sub optimal or aren’t completed, and create disappointment and frustration. The Reproductive Medicine and Surgery Center of Virginia, a fertility clinic located in Charlottesville, VA is open 7 days a week 363 days each year to optimize care.

In addition to Charlottesville, our fertility clinic serves patients from Harrisonburg, Staunton, Fishersville, Lynchburg, Roanoke, Waynesboro, Stuarts Draft, Forest, Bedford, Buena Vista, Vinton, and Bridgewater.

Be assured that you will receive the highest quality of comprehensive care at the Reproductive Medicine and Surgery Center of Virginia.
