Dallas, TX (KWKT) — In recognition of National Infertility Awareness Week, two Dallas-based fertility specialists will offer free consultations on Saturday, May 4th.
Dr. Noel Peng and Dr. Anil Pinto, reproductive endocrinologists, will offer the free fertility consultations on Saturday, May 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at Vivere-Dallas Surgery Center in an effort to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about infertility.
“Fertility problems are actually far more common than most people realize, as the demands of modern life make it difficult for many couples to easily conceive,” said Dr. Peng. “There are a number of factors that may contribute to fertility problems. It’s important to know where you are on the curve so that you can better understand the options available to you.”
All individuals, regardless of what their fertility challenges might be, are welcomed to participate in the free fertility consultations. Each one-on-one consultation with one of the physicians will be private and last approximately 15 minutes. The fertility consultation will be an opportunity for individuals to obtain information about the Vivere-Dallas Surgery Center program and learn about general treatment options.
“Patients are often times nervous about seeing a fertility specialist because they don’t know what to expect, or they are fearful of receiving bad news,” said Dr. Pinto. “Because there is a lot of anxiety associated with starting a conversation about this topic, we hope to alleviate some of that pressure by simply being available to advise individuals wishing to start a family.”
Registration is required for the free fertility conversations as space is limited. Participants are asked to call Michelle Hinds at Vivere-Dallas Surgery Center at 214-575-4060 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Vivere-Dallas Surgery Center is located at 12606 Greenville Avenue in Suite 190.
