This is solely a review on Dr. Jim Speed I have been seeing Dr speed for years, he delivered my children ( he literally saved my sons life when his cord was around his neck and took NO chances when I was very high risk with my daughter) and is my Gyn you will find NONE better than Dr Speed!! He genuinely cares about his patients and goes out of his way!! You are not just another patient, you are a person and he treats you like you are a member of his own family!! After 20 and 15 years he remembers the NAMES of my children and has never forgotten me! VERY impressive considering he sees soo many patients and delivers soo many babies!! He's the BEST ob/gyn ever!! If you are looking, look no more! He's the best of the best!
Tips & Advices
There are a variety of treatments reproductive endocrinologists can offer. Fertility drugs, such as Clomid, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and assisted reproductive therapy (ART) are the most common.
A fertility clinic is a medical clinic or hospital that specializes in helping couples or individuals who have fertility issues trying to have children. They focus on treatments to aid in the success of pregnancy and carrying the pregnancy to term. While many fertility clinics are covered by insurance, not all procedures are covered.
An endocrinologist must graduate from a four-year medical school from an osteopathic or allopathic (MD) program. This is followed by three years of residency in OB/gyn, followed by residency in a three year fellowship in endocrinology and infertility.
The endocrine system consists of glands that produce and secrete the hormones that control and regulate the activity of cells and organs. These hormones regulate growth, metabolism, sexual and reproductive development, and other physical and chemical processes. The primary glands of the endocrine system include the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, pineal body, the pancreas, parathyroid,  hypothalamus, and the reproductive organs (testes and ovaries).
Treatments that include the handling of egg and sperm are known as assisted reproductive technology (ART). The most common ART is in vitro fertilization (IVF). In this process, mature eggs are harvested from the female and fertilized by the male donor’s sperm (under laboratory conditions). Upon conception, the fertilized embryos are implanted into the female’s uterus.
