We have Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh on the show to talk all about your options for artificial insemination. In the nearly 20 years since she completed her medical training in 2001, Dr. Aimee has become well-known for her innovative approach to fertility care that begins with diagnosis before treatment.

She also completed a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility and holds a Masters in Public Health Management and Policy from the University of Michigan.
