April 14, 2020 – Dear Current and Future RADfertility Patient,
We have some good news to share! Our physicians have recently started telemedicine consultations from the safety of everyone’s home, and they are uniformly going very well. We plan to continue this helpful way to communicate with our current and future patients until we are able to safely open our doors for in-office visits, thus allowing evaluation and treatment. As the COVID-19 epidemic appears to be gradually slowing down in our community, we have started to plan a pathway for safely opening our office. We will continue telemedicine consults in the meantime, and hope you will stay connected to your portal and our RADfertility Facebook community. Stay safe and healthy, and we hope to see all of you in a few weeks!
Your RADfertility Family
March 23, 2020 – A Message From Dr. Ronald Feinberg
There are numerous reasons we shouldn’t proceed with non-urgent egg freeze and embryo creations cycles at this time:
1. Every patient or staff member involved is a potential asymptomatic carrier, and could become symptomatic during the course of treatment.
2. There is risk, albeit relatively small, to ovarian stimulation procedures and egg retrieval, i.e. infection, bleeding, ovarian hyperstimulation, ovarian torsion. Management of these potential complications could collide dramatically with the health care systems’ other stressors.
3. Anesthesiologists and/or anesthetists, who might be needed in many centers for oocyte retrieval, are in short supply and are busy managing ventilators in many centers.
4. Appropriate protective equipment is in very short supply.
5. This is temporary (let’s hope and pray), and no one will lose their skills.
6. All fertility care workers may need to be deployed to other health care and laboratory tasks.
7. Our clinical and lab space could be re-purposed for other uses.
Everyone needs to stay healthy, safe, calm, and prudent.
March 17, 2020 – To Our RADfertility Family,
Our top priorities at RADfertility are the combined safety and wellbeing of our patients and our staff. There has been a great deal of information to process up until this point about the epidemic, the impact we believe it will have on our citizens and healthcare community, and the specific guidance and mandates we have received from our leaders in healthcare and government. Based on all of this information, it is clearly necessary for RADfertility to suspend day-to-day operations as of March 20, 2020. We are actively communicating with patients and committed to your care in every way! For any questions or concerns during this time please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will get through this together!

Making a Difference
The Making a Difference series highlights the dedicated organizations and individuals in the community available to help you on your journey.
"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."
"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."
"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."
"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"
"The day I met Dr. Neithardt I knew she was the perfect doctor for me. Dr. Neithardt was so compassionate every step of the way. She held my hand, she hugged away tears, and continued to give me hope. There are not enough 'thank you's' in the world for Dr. Neithardt and the whole RADfertility team who will forever have a special place in my heart."
"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options. I am so fortunate and appreciative of the care that I received at RADfertility. They go above and beyond."
"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."
"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
