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 was interested in OB/GYN from the beginning of medical school since I am an ardent feminist. At the time I started my medical education, there were few women doctors and a very small number of female OB/GYNs (which is hard to believe given their predominance currently). I thought it was important to have a woman’s perspective for many gynecologic issues, and I still do!

Reproductive medicine deals with the foundation of life, literally. Through the practice of IVF, we have learned so much about the beginnings of human life and the things that lead to the birth of a healthy child. To me, that is very interesting and exciting.

In an era of corporate medicine, it is fundamental to maintain focus on both medical outcomes and patient satisfaction. I think SGF succeeds in keeping both focuses at its core.

 I am quiet but curious, and I love to hear people tell their stories 

I would like to visit more national parks in the western U.S. They are all amazing!

I love the outdoors — gardening, hiking, biking, and skiing. I find peace and tranquility there.

I grow lots of vegetables and some flowers in my garden. I like to make soups with the veggies and various things with rhubarb, which is my main “crop” — my rhubarb chutney gets rave reviews. I am also active in my community, participating in volunteer activities, singing in the choral group, and being involved in interfaith community service projects.
