Atlanta, GA – SGF, a pioneer in reproductive medicine, research, and innovation, and home to more than 85,000 babies born, announced today that SGF Atlanta has resumed all fertility procedures and treatments in its Atlanta, GA, location. While its Alpharetta, Buckhead-Piedmont, and Marietta offices remain closed temporarily, all Greater Atlanta area patients may start or resume full-service fertility care.
“Patient, staff and community safety are of paramount importance, especially now. We’ve implemented new safety precautions at nearly every step of the patient experience. So while this is not business as usual, our commitment to help those struggling to conceive is strong and steadfast,” said Pavna Brahma, M.D., of SGF’s Atlanta-Northside and Buckhead-Piedmont locations.
SGF Fertility Treatments Now Available in Georgia
Comprehensive fertility services, such as fertility and ovarian reserve testing and diagnosis, semen analysis, a full range of fertility treatments such as ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination (IUI), and cycle monitoring, in vitro fertilization (IVF), donor egg, sperm, and embryo treatment, genetic screening and testing, IVF for inherited genetic disease prevention, gestational carrier, egg freezing, fertility preservation for patients with cancer, and LGBTQ family building are all currently available at SGF Atlanta.
Patients seeking a fertility consult with an SGF physician may do so using during a secure, private video consult. “We have found the new video consults offer a uniquely intimate way of getting to know our patients during that first consult. For most, it’s a more comfortable and convenient experience being able to get questions answered and chart a plan for moving forward from comfort of their own home,” shared Anne Namnoum, M.D., of SGF’s Atlanta-Northside office.
“We are so inspired by the strength and endurance shown by our community during these uncertain times, and we recognize that while much of our world has been put on hold, our patients’ desire to have a baby remains. With improvements to safety and physical distancing protocols in place, we are overjoyed that our patients can again move forward with their family building goals at SGF,” said Mark Perloe, M.D., of SGF’s Atlanta-Northside office.
