The Institute for Reproductive Health is pleased to announce that Nurse Practitioner Sarah Price has joined our practice! Working in collaboration with Drs. Awadalla, Scheiber and Burwinkel, she will participate in a wide range of direct patient care services.
After graduating from Ohio University with a BS in Biology and earning a BS in Nursing at Cleveland State University, she continued her studies at the University of Cincinnati, receiving her Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) degree in 2011. Approachable and thorough in nature, Sarah is patient-centered in philosophy and practice and brings eight years of clinical experience and a wealth of knowledge in Oncofertility.
The very nature of fertility care involves precise timing. So in order to provide you with the most effective care possible, we provide services 7 days per week at the main office in Rookwood. In order to maximize convenience for all of our patients, especially those travelling several hours each way for their care, we also staff our offices in West Chester, OH and Florence, KY several days per week each. The IRH caretakers also provide surgical care and consulting services at several hospitals in the Tri State area.
As an IRH patient, you will have a primary provider who acts as caretaker and point person for coordinating your care, formulating treatment plans, being available for consultations, etc. However, since our providers see patients in so many locations and IVF and IUI procedures are usually scheduled with only 1-3 days’ notice, we firmly believe that a team approach will allow you to receive the best care possible, 7 days per week. That means that for a particular office visit, ultrasound, or procedure, you may see any one of our other providers, including Sarah Price. Even if you are scheduled to see one provider on a given day, that provider may be called away for an unscheduled or time sensitive procedure and a different provider may step in to minimize your wait time or allow your procedure to move forward smoothly as scheduled. All of our providers stay in close contact with each other regarding patient care, and we think that you will benefit from having the clinical experience of all of our providers contribute mutually to optimizing your outcome.
We are excited for the future of our practice. Please join us in welcoming Sarah Price, APRN to our practice. She is a great addition!
