Northwest Fertility Center is a state-of-the-art fertility practice dedicated to identifying and solving the problems that keep you from having the baby you’ve always wanted. We diagnose and treat all infertility issues including recurrent miscarriages, endometriosis, sperm problems, ovulation and hormonal disorders.
Our mission is to provide comprehensive, individualized fertility treatment with the highest standards of medical excellence and compassionate care. Our process is individualized and thorough, with respect for your physical and mental health, your timetable and your resources.
Our fertility clinic has been “giving miracles a little nudge” since 1986, offering treatment to couples ranging from simple timing advice and nutritional changes, ovulation medications or intrauterine insemination (IUI). We also specialize in areas such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), donor oocyte IVF, and gestational surrogacy with the some of the highest success rates and lowest costs available.
While in vitro fertilization is arguably the most well-known fertility treatment, Dr. Stoelk and his team have a wide range of surgical and medical options at their disposal. They will use up-to-date science and their careful understanding of you and your needs to implement the best possible plan.
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.
Finally, it’s my job to be a highly competent physician to perform treatments, surgeries and IVF with a maximum of success.
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 is an active member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and local medical societies.
