Medical assistance can help couples become parents. One in eight couples has trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. And each year, thousands of same-sex couples choose to become parents using assisted reproductive techniques such as egg and sperm donation.

If you’re seeking medical assistance to start or expand your family through egg donation or other means, you may wonder how best to choose a specialist. Deciding which doctor or clinic with which to work can be overwhelming.

Don’t worry. Making a choice is easier than you may think. By keeping these five important tips in mind, you can select the best specialist for you.

Choose a highly trained, board-certified doctor

You want to work with a doctor who has received extensive training in reproductive medicine. This is a very specialized field, and having a doctor with advanced training increases your chances of success.

Board-certified OB/GYN Andrew L. Loucopoulos, MD, PhD, is an infertility specialist, reproductive endocrinologist, and reproductive medicine expert. He is a member of the highly regarded Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, as well as other professional organizations.

Choose an experienced doctor

When it comes to fertility treatment, working with an experienced doctor can make all the difference. Years of experience give a doctor the wisdom, patience, and insight needed to provide the best clinical care for you.

Dr. Loucopoulos has dedicated himself to providing expert medical care since 1983. In addition to his medical education, Dr. Loucopoulos has held research, fellowship, and faculty positions at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Columbia Presbyterian.

Choose a practice that offers personal attention

Large fertility clinics that serve thousands of patients can feel impersonal. Patients may experience long waits, busy waiting rooms, communication gaps, a one-size-fits-all approach, and a rotating cast of doctors and staff.

Dr. Loucopoulos takes pride in his highly private practice, where every interaction reflects a compassionate, personalized approach. He enjoys providing one-on-one care that makes his patients feel fully supported. The tranquil atmosphere in his boutique practice provides a calm setting for fully customized, patient-centered care.  

Choose a doctor with a caring staff

Going through fertility treatment can be an emotional journey. Your experience is much more pleasant when you feel supported by the people who work at your doctor’s office.

Dr. Loucopoulos works closely with egg donor coordinator Valerie McMorris, who has over 16 years of experience in the area of GYN/infertility and egg donation. Intended parents appreciate Valerie’s personal attention and her caring, supportive approach.

Choose a convenient location

Egg donation and fertility treatment can sometimes require repeat appointments, so a convenient location makes life easier for you.

Dr. Loucopoulos offers infertility and reproductive medicine therapies at his practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. His office is conveniently located on Fifth Avenue.  

If you’re in search of the very best in care for egg donation or other fertility treatment, you’re in good hands with Dr. Loucopoulos. Request an appointment using the online scheduling tool or call the office today.
