Additional Services at the Fertility Center
The Fertility Center offers a variety of services designed to complement our infertility treatment programs. Learn more about our additional services for fertility patients below.
Research has shown that the stress associated with infertility can be comparable to the anxiety associated with serious illness. Patients who participate in infertility counseling are often better prepared for treatment and are more confident and less stressed.
The Fertility Center strongly encourages counseling, and patients using know egg donors or choosing a surrogate are required to see a counselor.
Patients can meet with Ann Ramey, our licensed clinical therapist in our Chattanooga office.
We also refer patients to Christine Barckhoff, LCSW who is located near our Knoxville office. You can make an appointment directly with her by calling 865-924-2200. Her office address is: 10411 Lovell Center Dr, Suite 107, Knoxville, TN 37922.
Acupuncture and acupressure have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years to enhance fertility and support pregnancies. Some of the Fertility Center’s Chattanooga patients who use acupuncture for infertility treatment highly recommend Four Seasons Acupuncture at Nutrition World Wellness Center, located at the corner of Vance Road and Lee Highway in Chattanooga. For more information, call (423) 883-5462 and speak with Margie Wesley, LAC.
For our Knoxville patients, we recommend the Tennessee Center for Reproductive Acupuncture. Sarah is experienced in acupuncture for fertility and will come to Chattanooga for your transfer procedure.
