Team FERTILYS

The human-scale Clinic

Nurses

Nurses play an essential role in caring for patients and couples, particularly by providing support during treatment, following schedules, educating couples, and more.

These professionals are fundamental resources, participating directly in therapeutic plans and assisting medical teams with different MAP techniques.

They provide you with guidance, comfort and information throughout the process!

Clientele Service

Happy to greet you and answer all of your questions, our customer service representatives understand your concerns and will direct you to the right professionals.

They are this solid link, the much-needed communications channel when it matters.

You can count on them to guide you through your Fertilys experience!

Laboratory Personnel

As embryology is an important practice in MAP care, we need embryologists to harvest oocytes and carry out various techniques.

Medical biology professionals take care of the investigative process, allowing our doctors to make the most accurate diagnosis possible.

 

Our laboratory staff personally look after patients and create little miracles!
