Update for Aspire Austin Patients
Although we have begun to reopen our doors, we understand that these continue to be unprecedented circumstances for fertility care. During this time, we’ve considered transparency of utmost importance and have prioritized sharing regular updates with our patient community about any changes to treatment plans, regulations, or our facilities. As such, we wanted to share a few updates to the Aspire Fertility provider team.
We regret to share that Dr. Skillern and Dr. Crawford will be transitioning out of the Aspire Fertility practice over the next few weeks. We congratulate them and are incredibly grateful for the impact they have made on Aspire Fertility Austin and the family-building paths of their patients. We wish them lots of luck on their endeavors as they embark on the next step in their professional journeys. Our practice continues to look forward to providing you with the best fertility care.
