Patient Testimonial
Dr. Schnell was able to find out what was wrong with me and was able to fix it when other doctors couldn’t, for so many years. Now my pain is gone & we are pregnant!

We have 2 beautiful babies thanks to the persistent efforts of Dr. Schnell.

Absolutely pleased with our results. Dr. Crochet was the first doctor to take my concerns seriously, found the root cause of my infertility issues and created a plan that helped us to conceive twins! He’s the best!

Dr. Crochet is such a caring, intelligent physician. I felt so supported, especially during the difficult times in my fertility journey.

Dr. Crochet and his team have exceeded our expectations on this journey that was so unfamiliar and unexpected. We have always felt taken care of throughout our entire experience!

Dr. Perfetto’s confidence with treatment success rates, her overall attitude towards our case and the fact that we felt “known” and understood by Dr. Perfetto and her staff.

Q&A

I’ve been in the women’s health field my entire nursing career, a large part of that spent in labor and delivery at Inova Fairfax Hospital. Being able to help women in their fertility journey as a Nurse Practitioner after years helping women deliver babies is special to me. It’s like I’ve come full circle.

I was born and raised in Boston, MA, so I’m a Boston sports fan by default! However, I’ve been residing in Northern Virginia for 15+ years with my husband and our three young kids. I love to cook, bake, read, craft, and take the kids hiking across all the National Parks.
