Meet Dr. McAvey

"The biggest satisfaction I have professionally is establishing a strong physician to patient core relationship that lasts throughout the treatment cycle and beyond. I think it's important to stay committed until the end goal of pregnancy is achieved. It makes the “highs and lows” for the patient easier to handle knowing that I’m by their side throughout the journey."
