Eugene Stoelk, M.D.

Dr. Stoelk received both his undergraduate degree in science and his medical degree at the University of Iowa. He completed residency training in obstetrics and gynecology in Grand Rapids, Michigan followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Louisville.

It was during this time that he and his wife Karen experienced their own difficulties with infertility. “She went through years of treatments for ovulation problems and endometriosis. She experienced a miscarriage and a tubal ectopic pregnancy,” Dr. Stoelk says. “We later adopted our first child, Nathan, and found out what a joy parenthood could be.” They were later able to conceive naturally and have two daughters, Kristina and Rachel.

Dr. Stoelk established the Northwest Fertility Center in 1986 and is its physician and medical director. He is well recognized in the Pacific Northwest for his expertise, and his success rates are consistently some of the highest in the Northwest and in the nation.

Dr. Stoelk’s Job

“It is my job first to be a good detective, sorting through each couple’s situation in the seven areas that every infertility issue can be found. It’s also my job to be a good listener, trying to help the couple navigate through the medical as well as financial, social and emotional issues to arrive at the right game plan that works for them.

Last, it’s my job to be a precisely competent physician to perform treatments, surgeries and IVF with a maximum of success.”

Dr. Stoelk is an active member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology, and local medical societies.

BoasefamilyIt has been 8 months since our beautiful little boy was born and we still talk about how much we love Dr. Stoelk and his staff. I simply can’t say enough wonderful things about Northwest Fertility and our experience. From the first phone call to their office, to our first meeting with Dr. Stoelk, to our last ultrasound, I was blown away by their sincerity, optimism, professionalism, expertise, confidence, and dedication to my husband and I’s future family. After a few appointments, Dr. Stoelk found the perfect treatment for us. We went from being terrified that kids may not be in our future (due to negativity from other doctors) to being blessed with our sweet Lincoln in just 5 months.

This was easily the absolute best experience I have ever had in a doctor’s office. I have already recommended him to many of my friends and will continue to do so. It just doesn’t get any better that this staff. Thank you so much, Dr. Stoelk. You have a very special place in our hearts.

Jordan, Bailey and Lincoln Boase
