IHR Philosophy

Committed to individual infertility solutions
Dedicated fertility professionals, world class reputation, and a record of success.

For nearly two decades, IHR has been a leading provider of assisted reproductive technologies, including IVF and all other major fertility treatments. At IHR, our patients’ well-being and satisfaction come first. We are dedicated to doing whatever we can to utilize our considerable resources and experience to help families deal with, and solve, a wide range of infertility issues. We are well aware how difficult it is both to grapple with the emotional decisions that accompany diagnoses of infertility, and to juggle the financial implications that accompany making the decision to pursue a solution. We understand all these factors and pledge to do our utmost to work with you to determine whatever solution you decide on, and to make it successful.

Many of the families we work with travel from different areas of the country or the world to pursue fertility treatments with us. We understand how difficult it can be for couples to leave work and other family members at home while traveling to our Institute. We are available to help you make your trip as easy as possible, including assisting you with hotel arrangements, scheduling an interpreter, or offering a restaurant recommendation.

We hope you will contact us with any questions, issues, or problems you may have, so we can get started working together and helping you realize your family dreams.
