IVF Families

Dr. Susan Fox,   Starting Monday, video consults will be a feature in our online scheduling calendar.  There is much I can do to help women and couples who are on hold in their ivf calendar cycles improve their reproductive health during these weeks and months. I can order/review labs, diagnose and treat with dietary and lifestyle recommendations, supplement prescriptions and acupressure stimulation sequences. 

My EHR provider is incorporating into existing system, so HIPAA compliant.
