Our compassionate nurses are dedicated to providing patients with special attention and personalized care.  Many of our nurses have over ten years of experience in the field of reproductive medicine.  There is a family-like atmosphere at Main Line Fertility  – the clinical team members genuinely care about their patients.

We have three teams of nurses at Main Line Fertility  — the practice nurses (or doctors’ office), IVF monitoring nurses and IVF procedure nurses.  In addition, we have nurses and medical specialists at our offices in Paoli and West Chester.

“Anyone who has fertility issues I would highly recommend Main Line Fertility. They make you feel so welcome, and comfortable. I’m almost through with IVF and honestly as excited as I am I will be upset when I wont be going there any longer. Thanks for all the support and assistance in every way possible” – M.W.
