Fertility First Steps

Making the decision or even just acknowledging that you need to seek additional help to become pregnant takes courage. Inovi and our reproductive specialists understand that you may need information on fertility procedures, genetic testing and infertility treatment in order to take the next step.

To make your visit a place to relax, our fertility specialist in Houston, Texas, Dr. Stephan Krotz and his highly trained team, have developed an environment to make your experience as stress free as possible.

Being conveniently located in the heart of Houston, Texas outside the congestion of the medical center at 3773 Richmond Avenue, is another way we focus on our patients.
