MedAnswers Doubles the Number of Fertility Experts in Network


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Venture-backed fertility startup, MedAnswers, today announced that it has added an impressive number of high-level professionals to its already robust network of experts to answer questions on the FertilityAnswers patient engagement platform. The platform is adding up to 1,000 new fertility specialists across the United States, Canada, Europe and Latin America.

MedAnswers connects anonymous users struggling to conceive with specialists, such as reproductive endocrinologists, acupuncturists, urologists and attorneys on the free FertilityAnswers app available on iOS and android. Individuals post their questions for experts to answer, knowing they will get accurate and empathetic information designed to shorten the amount of time required to get them from hopeful parent to parent.

“90% of young adults trust what they read on social media, despite the well-known spread of misinformation. We created a trusted resource for them to turn to in a private setting and add experts every day to keep up with question demand. We are so grateful to our professional network for stepping in to help us solve this problem,” said Alice Crisci, CEO and Co-founder of MedAnswers.

The FertilityAnswers app acquires 1,000-2,000 new users weekly, demonstrating the need for this type of service. In reponse, the MedAnswers team has reached out to leading-edge professionals for their support in the area of patient care.



“Going through infertility is stressful. Navigating through fact vs. fiction, standard of care vs opinion is invaluable to patients. MedAnswers offers patients an opportunity to get answers that can guide them through this stressful process. Being part of that for me is a way to give back,” said Dr. Sam Najmabadi from The Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology in Los Angeles, California.
