Patient Story

Mary Dolan

Our first visit to a reproductive endocrinologist did nothing to ease my fears – I was told bluntly that my labs were so poor that they wouldn’t even consider IVF with my eggs, and my only options were donor eggs or adoption. I felt certain I was meant to be a mom and was convinced I could make it happen another way.
