Fertility Practice RMACT Weathers the Storm With First Retrievals In New Offices
It’s true that a storm brings out the best and the worst of us. Sometimes, it even brings out the extraordinary in us. (Read down about our own spectacular team at Reproductive Medicine Associates of CT for how we’ve done our first retrievals in the midst of the storm.) This blizzard, so far, for us folks in Connecticut has been a very bad storm, but not quite a blizzard.
Our Fertility Practice Weathers Storm Juno
The storms been bad enough though and who knows how much worse it may get.
The best news? Single digits for people who have lost power in the state, let’s hope that they resume their place on the power grid very soon and that no one else joins them there. Other good news, the Governor of Connecticut has just lifted the ban on traveling on the roads, not that anyone who doesn’t have to be should really be out there. And we simply, so far, have not gotten the snow fall predicted that could cause all sorts of other problems.
The worst news is not that bad so far. The wind is pretty fierce. The snow is still coming down. Let’s see how the rest of the day goes.
For us at RMACT, we’re closed today. No patients for routine blood draws, ultrasounds or consults. No new patients. Except sometimes closed doesn’t quite mean closed, certainly in the case of RMACT today.
First Retrievals in New Norwalk Fertility Practice Location
What’s extraordinary is our RMACT team members, ably led by Dr. Joshua Hurwitz, are doing our very first retrievals in our brand new Norwalk office. Yes, in the middle of this snow storm. Yes, while most businesses are shut down and most people are home with their families. Nine of our RMACT team members stayed in a local hotel to be able to provide, yet again, the very best in scientific, medical and fertility care for our patients.
Dr. Hurwitz, Brigitte, Brenda, Letty, Tralicia, Lindsay Erica, Liset, and Katherine, you rock. You really rock. You put our patients before your own needs and desires to be safe at home with your families. That is extraordinary. That is going above and beyond. Big, warm hug to you all.
That’s what you can expect at RMACT. Over and over again.
