Stamford is a vibrant, young city and we are excited to help the people who live and work here to make their dreams for a family a reality.
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is opening a new, convenient location in downtown Stamford at 1290 Summer Street, suite 3200, today. RMACT – Fairfield County’s leading fertility clinic and egg donation center – offers fertility patients quality care from a team of board-certified reproductive endocrinologists, fertility nurses and other fertility specialists. In addition, the practice is opening the RMACT Integrated Fertility & Wellness Center, which is the next progression in RMACT’s complementary care, including services such as Fertile Yoga, nutrition counseling, acupuncture, peer support groups, and therapy, both for individuals and couples.
RMACT used patient feedback and independent research to identify Stamford as a viable location. Along with RMACT’s Danbury and Norwalk locations, RMACT’s Stamford location allows patients flexibility when scheduling appointments near their homes and work in order to better fit their needs. It also brings new opportunities with many commuters working in Stamford from locations in the surrounding area, including New York City.
“Stamford is a vibrant, young city and we are excited to help the people who live and work here to make their dreams for a family a reality,” says, Dr. Mark Leondires, medical director and lead infertility doctor with RMACT. “We are also able to respond to our current patients’ interest with our Integrated Fertility & Wellness services.”
The new Stamford location has considerable space, allowing the fertility practice to grow its Integrated Fertility & Wellness Program by giving it a proper home – and transforming it into a Center. Over the past decade the practice has been adding services to help patients reduce stress (e.g., Fertile Yoga, peer support groups, therapy) and improve their overall health (e.g., nutrition counseling, acupuncture). It now has a robust offering of classes and appointments at various times throughout the week for the greatest accessibility to patients.
As part of the move to Stamford, RMACT will be closing its Cos Cob location. The patients who have received treatment through this office were alerted this summer about the transition. Their appointments will continue in Stamford, which is approximately 10 minutes (4.7 miles) north on the Connecticut coast.
RMACT’s comprehensive services include many complimentary fertility seminars and workshops that are open to the public; following is an example of an event in Stamford. For a complete list of events in all three locations – Stamford, Danbury and Norwalk - go to http://www.rmact.com/events/.
