I want to personally acknowledge your most heartfelt desire to have a child, and to assure you that you have my unwavering commitment as a partner and advocate throughout your fertility journey — from your first office visit to that glorious day your bundle of joy arrives.
I carry a deep personal and professional responsibility to each of my patients as human beings and as individuals struggling to conceive. I pledge to perform a thorough evaluation of and offer constructive, personalized treatment recommendations. Whether the news is good or bad, I vow to be open and honest when interpreting your history, exams, test results, and treatment outcomes. I believe that patients’ choices should be heard and honored, so I will treat you as an equal participant in medical decision-making.
Once we have your work-up in hand, I will present a detailed array of treatment options — from most conservative to most aggressive. We’ll review the pros, cons, logistics, success rates, and financial implications of each treatment, and I will make recommendations with your best interest in mind — not ours. Once you clearly understand all the pros and cons, you’ll be able to choose the option that’s right for you.
Please enjoy browsing our website, and never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting you, and to helping you fulfill your most cherished dream.
With Warmest Regards,
Shane T. Lipskind, MD
Medical Director, Arizona Center for Fertility Studies
At ACFS, we value personal service and the opportunity to speak with you directly. Most questions can be answered quickly and easily by one of our physicians or patient coordinators. If you have an urgent question or need, a phone call is always the best way to reach us—even after hours!
If you are an ACFS patient, your Artisan Ally account gives you access to secure private messaging, educational materials (including medication teaching videos), your treatment calendars, and more! The portal offers a secure way to send non-urgent messages to your ACFS fertility team. These messages will generally be answered within 24 hours. If your issue is urgent and you have not received a response by 3pm M-F, please call the office so that we can assist you most efficiently during normal business hours.
If you are not yet a patient but have a question related to ACFS services or would like a call from Dr. Lipskind and his team, you can e-mail us. We always make an effort to respond within 24-48 hours. However, email should not be used for medical questions related to your care. Please call or use your patient portal instead.
