The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services Opens Hamden Office

Farmington, Conn. – The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services, part of the University of Connecticut Health Center, will open a new office in Hamden on August 2.

“Since fertility treatments often require many visits, the office is centrally located on Whitney Avenue. With this new office, couples from southern Connecticut can now receive much of their care closer to their home or work,” said John Nulsen, M.D., the Center’s lead physician.

The new office is located on 2080 Whitney Avenue, Suite 250. The phone number is 203-230-4400.

The office will offer state-of-the-art fertility services, ranging from consultations to advanced procedures, pre and post operative visits, psychological services, support groups, classes and seminars. Patients will be seen by David W. Schmidt, M.D., a specialist in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

The Center’s main office in Farmington, on the campus of the UConn Health Center, is a full service facility. The Center offers many advanced techniques to help patients achieve successful pregnancies. UConn was one of the first centers to offer in vitro fertilization in Connecticut and is currently the largest such center in the state.
