What do clients have to say about you?

“My wife and I have finally found our doctor!! Dr. Styer really spent the time to review our history and was so sensitive to our prior frustrations with other providers who were inexperienced with LGBTQ care. He has this very calming effect and helped us believe that we will be successful and deserve to be parents as much as a traditional hetero couples. I don’t usually do online reviews, but I feel compelled to tell everyone that I know we will be moms soon with the help of Dr. Styer.”

“We had been struggling with infertility for 3 years. After seeing 2 other doctors and feeling like just a number and not a person, we were desperate to find a fertility specialist that treated us like people, listened to our concerns, and explained things very well. We found that at CCRM Boston! Dr. Styer and his team quickly became our second family! After only 3 months, 1 surgery, and 2 IUI cycles we are finally pregnant and owe that to Dr. Styer and his team! They genuinely care about you and your story and treat you with the upmost respect! I am very sad that our journey was a quick one and it feels strange not going to our "second home!" But we owe all our happiness to CCRM Boston!! Thank you to Dr. Styer, Karen, and the rest of the CCRM team!!!!”

“My wife and I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Styer a few months ago to help us get pregnant. We are both in the healthcare field and we can easily say that our care at CCRM has been the best we have experienced as patients and as healthcare providers. Dr. Styer has a knowledgeable, compassionate, and thoughtful bedside manner that is truly refreshing. He and his team always made time for us if we had additional questions and always made us feel so comfortable. The clinic and staff were so welcoming, and our care has been top notch. The fertility journey has been challenging for us over the past few years. However, Dr. Styer has truly shown us what is means to "care" for patients. He has been so enthusiastic and our confidence in our chances for pregnancy have been bolstered immensely. His care of us has been second to none. He is an incredible fertility doctor and we recommend him and CCRM to anyone who is looking for a clinic where you want truly excellent care.”

What inspired your passion for your profession?

From experiences as the oldest of four children, my deep appreciation of family was the foundation of my interest. My memories of the sheer joy and awe of parents first meeting their child during my first delivery of a baby in medical school over 20 years ago have always deeply resonated with me. This was my true inspiration to become a fertility specialist to help patients and couples achieve their lifelong dream of becoming parents.

What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

I firmly believe that to be a great physician, you need to be an excellent listener. I always aim to listen and to hear my patient’s story, to be responsive to their needs, and to provide reassurance that their questions and concerns will always be addressed. This is essential in the field of infertility, where emotions and concerns are both spoken and unspoken and can influence a patient’s family building experiences and success.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

My advice for those seeking fertility treatments is to be open as possible about their emotions with their significant other, spouse, family, friends, and medical team and to feel empowered to ask for support. I reassure patients that emotions are very normal and that they are not alone in their infertility journey. I emphasize that their chance for success is not always measured by the test results, but by our attention to their individual circumstances.
