Gail Freeman, WHNP

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 spent my early nursing career working in women’s health. While pursuing my master’s degree as a NP I worked in the fertility office where I had been a patient (a successful one). I found my new calling. I felt that I could bring a perspective to the job of a previous patient. I have never looked back on that decision.

Watching just about any sport on TV or in person, especially baseball, reading, needlepoint and traveling.

Probably nothing, since I’m a pretty open book.
