Individuals and couples can now schedule new patient appointments with Jennifer E. Mersereau, M.D., MSCI, at SGF Carolinas’ new location in Raleigh, North Carolina.  

US Fertility, the largest physician-owned, physician-led partnership of top-tier fertility practices in the U.S., proudly announces it is now scheduling new patient appointments with Jennifer E. Mersereau, M.D., MSCI, at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas’ new Raleigh, North Carolina, location. As an established fertility specialist in Raleigh, Dr. Mersereau, medical director of SGF Carolinas, is proud to provide patient care at SGF Carolina’s new location.  

SGF announced earlier this year its new exclusive arrangement as the official fertility partner of the North Carolina Courage women’s NWSL team, based in Cary, NC.   

“I appreciate that SGF aims to take a complicated and potentially stressful process and make it as easy and straightforward for patients as possible,” shares Dr. Mersereau. “This is evident in their high pregnancy rates, their compassionate staff, their Shared Risk 100% Refund program, and the easy access to care, which I am proud to bring to the Raleigh area.”   

Located across from WakeMed Cary Hospital, SGF’s first location in North Carolina is equipped with a compassionate and experienced care team to help patients in the Cary and Raleigh area realize their dreams of parenthood. 

SGF Carolinas’ Raleigh location offers comprehensive fertility services including:   

  • virtual and in-person new patient consults, 
  • fertility and ovarian reserve testing and diagnosis, 
  • low-tech fertility options, 
  • in vitro fertilization (IVF), 
  • donor egg, sperm, and embryo, 
  • genetic screening and testing, 
  • gestational carrier, 
  • egg freezing, 
  • fertility preservation for patients with cancer, 
  • LGBTQ+ family building, 
  • financial counseling, and more. 

SGF Carolinas is proud to make fertility care accessible by offering the Shared Risk 100% Refund program. This exclusive program provides patients with the opportunity to pay a fixed amount for up to six fresh IVF or donor egg cycles and any subsequent frozen embryo transfers (FETs). Of the total Shared Risk 100% Refund Program participants, 82 percent take home a baby, and the rest receive a full refund to use for other family-building options.
