Writing blogs is a way for the doctors at Servy Massey Fertility Institute to have an informal conversation with our patients on a variety of topics – more than 120 to date. From 2011’s “Diminished Ovarian Reserve: Blame It on Your Daddy” to 2016’s “Q&A on Sex Selection of Embryos,” our doctors’ blogs have covered a lot of ground.
The doctors at Servy Massey Fertility Institute are IVF pioneers who have been practicing medicine for nearly 30 years. During this time, Dr. Joe Massey (Atlanta) and Dr. Edouard Servy (Augusta) have helped thousands of couples build families.
In their blogs the doctors use their personal insight and expertise to examine the science, ethics and surprising facts surrounding fertility and infertility treatments. Here you will find in-depth answers to an array of fertility questions, explained in clear terms from a specialist’s point of view.
Do you have questions about fertility you’d like to see answered in a future blog? Ask us on our Facebook page or on the “Ask the Doctor” forms on each of our doctor bio pages on the website.
