Thank-you to the two interviewees who so generously shared their time and expertise:
- Dr. Basim Abu Rafea, a reproductive endocrinologist, fertility specialist and medical director of The Fertility Clinic at London Health Sciences Centre here in London, Ont.
- Dr. Neal Mahutte, a reproductive endocrinologist and fertility specialist and director of The Montreal Fertility Centre.
