The male partner may receive little or no medical attention. This is in spite of the fact that a semen analysis is now recommended by many experts as a preferred first step in diagnosing infertility problems.”

During their visit, patients of the program are asked to provide a semen sample, which is analyzed while they wait and discussed with them while they are there. If male infertility appears to be the problem, the urologist works with each patient and his partner to determine the best course of treatment.

Dr. Chason earned his medical degree from the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago and completed his internship and residency at the University of Maryland. He is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the American Urological Association and the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology.
