Would-be parents who have had trouble conceiving in the City of Brotherly Love, I have some great news for you. Shady Grove Fertility, a nationally-renowned reproductive endocrinology practice, is opening its sixth Pennsylvania office location… and it’s right in Center City.
From a press release dated today: “Shady Grove Fertility announced today that its newest full-service office in Center City, Philadelphia is scheduled to open next month. This will be the practice’s sixth full-service office in Pennsylvania. The Center City location will bring a broad array of services to the Philadelphia community, offering convenient access to state-of-the-art diagnostic testing as well as low and high-tech treatment options including intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), donor egg treatment, and egg freezing.
