Bridging the Gap: Texas Fertility Center Reaches Patients in Their Native Tongues
Austin, Texas – June 25, 2010– A leader in the field of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility care, Texas Fertility Center (TFC) has been diagnosing and treating infertility for over 30 years. With locations in Austin and Round Rock, TFC serves patients in Austin, San Antonio, and throughout the United States. By utilizing advanced technology and staying abreast of the latest research, TFC has achieved nationally recognized pregnancy rates, resulting in the births of over 10,000 babies.
Dr. Thomas Vaughn, the Practice Director of TFC, explained that “We want our patients to receive excellent care in a warm, welcoming environment. Making sure people feel at ease here is a top priority. ”
Due to a large influx of international patients and to better meet the needs of the diverse patient population in Central Texas, the TFC web site can now be translated into several languages, including Spanish, Hindi, Vietnamese, and Chinese. Patients who wish to view the site in another language can select the desired language from a drop-down list on the home page. The physicians and staff members at TFC are also fluent in multiple languages including Spanish, Hindi, and Slovak dialects.
“Dealing with infertility can be difficult for our patients, and a language barrier can make the situation even harder,” said Dr. Kaylen Silverberg, Medical Director of TFC. “Offering the translation feature on our web site was an easy way to help our patients feel more comfortable.”
Infertility affects an estimated seven million couples in the United States. With more than 75 years of combined experience, the doctors at TFC are experts in endometriosis, PCOS, and minimally invasive reproductive surgery, as well as IVF, IUI, and ovulation induction. “We want our web site to serve as an educational resource for our patients, and for anyone struggling with infertility,” Dr. Silverberg said. “The translation capability allows us to reach even more people, both in the US and abroad.”
