Patient Testimonial
We love Dr. Schnell. She is very passionate about what she does. She is a great doc and we are so excited for her help.

This team is awesome! I love that you can call the nurses line any time of day and get an answer quickly.

These people are the reason i have my son! The other places don’t hold a candle to them and I especially love my miracle child.

I am so grateful to Dr. Crochet and his team for helping us reach our dream of parenthood.

We are a part of the LGBT community and with Dr. Kallen’s guidance we were able to do reciprocal IVF so both my wife and I had a integral part in the process. It took us 3 tries to conceive our second baby and Dr. Kallen was supportive and empathetic every step of the way!

I cannot express in words my experience with Dr. Tomer Singer. I am not finished with my treatment at all however this man is a hero.

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.
