As one of only three FertilityCare Medical Consultants in New England, patients travel from across the region to In His Image Family Medicine, to receive care for infertility, PMS, and other gynecological issues, that are consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Dr. Carpentier is co-founder of the Worcester Guild of the Catholic Medical Association and served as its first President.
For 20 years, Dr. Carpentier has been a leader in the American Academy of FertilityCare Professionals. The Academy fosters high quality, modern and dependable instruction in Natural Family Planning, both here and around the globe, with members in 22 countries, such as Ireland, England, Taiwan, Canada, Mexico, Poland and Australia.
There are 230 FertilityCare Centers in the United States, offering services in Natural Family Planning and NaProTECHNOLOGY (Natural Procreative Technology). The Academy certifies that teachers and doctors have passed rigorous professional standards and administers frequent continuing educational seminars.
Dr. Carpentier was named the 2004 international Outstanding Medical Consultant in Natural Family Planning "for recognition of Service, Education and Research in the Field of Fertility Care Services."
Couples suffering from infertility might think that their only option for having children of their own is in-vitro fertilization (IVF), but Doctor Carpentier’s objective has been to use NaProTECHNOLOGY to help these couples realize their dream of becoming parents, while respecting and strengthening their commitment to each other and their faith.
During his 22 years of comprehensive medical care for his community, Dr. Carpentier has delivered 400 babies, made more than 100,000 office visits, 10,000 hospital visits, 1500 nursing home visits and over 200 house calls.
