October 31, 2017
Dear Valued Patient:
While we have had 11 joyous years of helping our patients fulfill their dreams of family, today, it is with sadness that I write to inform you that SIRM-New Jersey will be closing its doors on January 31, 2018.
One of the things that we have prided ourselves on over the years, is our small boutique practice which afforded the opportunity to give high quality one on one care to our patients, in a comfortable, friendly office setting. On behalf of myself and my dedicated team at SIRM – New Jersey, we want to thank you for trusting us over the years and for giving us the honor of having taken care of you.
If you are currently in cycle with us, we will still be completing our November and December cycles. Your nurse coordinator is available to answer any questions you may have. If you currently have sperm, embryos or oocytes stored in our facility, please note that we will no longer be able to provide storage in our facility as of January 15, 2018. We will coordinate the safe and secure transfer of any specimens to the practice of your choice. To initiate this process, please contact us as soon as you are able. If you have not selected a new practice, we can arrange for long-term storage of your specimen in a secured and trusted environment with one of our partners.
SIRM-New Jersey is currently referring patients to our SIRM- New York location, a practice that we have a close, trusting relationship with and also one that will allow for a more seamless patient experience. Their phone number is 646-792-7476. We also suggest Abington Reproductive IVF and Family Fertility Center, both located in Bethlehem, PA if you are looking for a fertility practice in Pennsylvania.
If you would like to obtain a copy of your medical records, or if there are any other questions you may have, we are standing by to guide you through this time of transition. It has been my honor to serve as your physician, and I wish you the greatest success in all of your future family building efforts!
With great thanks,
Dr. Al Peters
Medical Director, SIRM-New Jersey
