I cannot think of enough good things to say about the staff — especially the physicians and nurses — at UNC Fertility. My experience there has spanned two years and in this time I have always found them to be supportive and professional, with excellent communication and accommodation.
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for nine months before receiving the devastating news of an abnormal semen analysis. We were given hope by UNC and we were given our little miracle. We would do it all over again and it was so worth everything we went through.
We would highly recommend UNC Fertility to anybody; especially any same-sex couples trying to conceive. We always felt welcomed and at home when we were there. It was a happy and sad day when we were released to see an obstetrician because that meant no more trips to UNC for a while.
