FAQ FOR REFERRING DOCTOR
When should my patients see an REI (fertility specialist)?
Infertility is defined as trying to conceive for 1 year if under the age of 35 years old and trying to conceive for 6 months if older than 35. If any patient is concerned or anxious about their fertility status, please refer them to us.
