“It is such a basic human desire to have children and if you can’t its pretty tough,” Poma Fertility Reproductive Endocrinologist Dr. Michael Opsahl said. “It is important to us that if people are going to come see us that were going to deliver on our product and actually give them that baby that they want. That’s key and we do that really well.”

Dr. Opsahl graduated in 1978 from the Medical University of South Carolina and completed an internship in obstetrics and gynecology. Soon after, he served as a medical officer on the naval vessel USS Nassau. Following his service, he became resident at the National Naval Medical Center in obstetrics and gynecology. He went on to serve for two years as an obstetrician-gynecologist at the Naval Hospital Okinawa Japan. In 1987, Dr. Opsahl completed his fellowship training at Walter Reed Army Hospital and the National Institutes of Health in reproductive endocrinology. Dr. Opsahl spent the remainder of his naval career as Director of Reproductive Endocrinology at NNMC in Bethesda, MD. He was an associate clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology until his move to Washington State in 2004. “We offer the greatest value in the Pacific Northwest because of our pricing,” Opsahl said.

“In infertility treatment, too many people risk a substantial portion of their savings and then have nothing to show for it. The low cost of our treatment allows a lot more people to take advantage of these technologies than would otherwise be able to if they had to pay the standard rate for infertility care in the U.S.” In addition to his clinical responsibilities at Poma Fertility, Opsahl has authored more than 25 scientific papers, serves as an ad hoc reviewer for fertility and obstetrics and gynecology medical journals, is a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, the Society for Assisted reproductive Technology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
