The formation of Lakeridge Fertility has evolved with great thought. Research suggests that the vast majority of couples seeking help leave the Durham region for fertility treatment. We will offer a new option for these couples and be close enough to Pickering, Ajax, Oshawa and surrounding communities to offer treatment to couples in these areas as well. When one considers the flow of traffic in the morning, there are clear time advantages to our location. We are also very sensitive to the needs of couples from smaller towns to the north and east of our location. Couples seeking a child should not be profoundly disadvantaged for choosing to live in rural Ontario and hence we will do all we can to accommodate these clients.
Medical Director, Dr. Andrew Browning MD, has 15 years of experience as the Medical Director of the Barrie Fertility Centre. Dr. Browning has learned through experience, how to organize a fertility centre to utilize current medical and communication technology to maximize the patient experience and pregnancy rates. We will take advantage of nursing skills to have as much of the daily interaction with patients occur with the same nurse and doctor. We will utilize email, Ipads, smart phones and Skype to maximize the importance of communication. We will also be open minded to the positive effects of good nutrition, vitamin supplementation and overall psychological well being in attempts to maximize success.
Unlike most clinics our size, we will have a staff member (David Weeks) able to focus on all non-medical issues including customer service. This will allow the medical team to do what we do best in helping couples to achieve their goals.
Our fertility centre will attempt to alleviate stress during your journey to parenthood. Our staff will provide the guidance, support and information necessary for couples to make informed decisions regarding their fertility treatments.
