How to Find the Right Fertility Doctor for Men
If you’re at the stage when you’re wondering how to find a male fertility doctor, you can choose the right male fertility specialist for you by measuring potential doctors against five important criteria:
Level of experience: Your doctor should have dedicated years of his or her professional life to the study and treatment of male infertility. Ask to see his or her credentials.
Advanced techniques: Check with your doctor to find out what added certifications and specialties he or she possesses, in addition to the foundational experience all fertility doctors have achieved. Ask about the latest procedures he or she has incorporated into the practice.
Diversity of services: Your doctor’s practice should diagnose and treat the gamut of male fertility challenges, offering a full array of sperm disorder and infertility treatments. In other words, don’t limit your potential with a limited practice.
State-of-the-art facilities: Infertility technology is evolving every day. It’s important to find a male fertility doctor who has the latest and greatest equipment. Ask your doctor about the equipment around his or her office to determine if it’s cutting edge.
Commitment to excellence: Your fertility doctor should be willing to sit down with you and your partner to discuss your family planning goals. You should also feel comfortable asking your doctor questions and receiving guidance. Good bedside manner is key.
