It is hard to overstate the convenience of our on-site lab services. Besides saving time, gas and aggravation, your test results are right here in our office under the direct supervision of Dr. Stoelk and his team. The results are timely and nothing gets lost. For our many out of town patients, we will coordinate with your local facilities and our staff helps you manage the process so it is practically seamless.
Northwest Fertility Center is conveniently located in the RiverPlace complex, off Naito Parkway near downtown Portland. There is plenty of parking, including free spots in our building. For parking details, visit our Contact Us page.
If you have had appointments at multi-physician facilities, the first thing you will notice is that our practice feels small. Compared to them, we are. Dr. Stoelk is our only physician and his staff is a tight team who enjoy working together. Here you are a person, not a number. It is intentional. Rather than say “small,” we say cozy … personal … friendly … comfortable. For something as personal as your fertility issues, it feels right.
Nevertheless, our office houses a modern IVF program with a state-of-the-art embryology, andrology (sperm), and hormone assay laboratories in which we can conduct most high-tech tests and treatments needed for many patients. Yet we perform this level of care in a comfortable and personal environment. For something as important as your fertility problems, this feels like smart medicine.
