Alaska fertility options: Our friends to the North
Patients often come to PNWF for care from outside of the Seattle Metropolitan area, including many from Alaska.
Working with the patient's hometown care provider, or nearby women's health center, the PNWF team will collaborate with physicians, nurse practitioners, and other clinicians to maximize the quality of care while minimizing travel to Seattle.
MEET ALASKA'S JOY ZIMMERMAN-GOLDEN, ANP-BC
Joy Zimmerman-Golden is an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner who is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. She provides patients with fertility workups, low-tech treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and the initial stages of in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. Zimmerman-Golden was the President of the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society in 2013-2104, the first nurse practitioner to hold that title in the Society’s 64 years. Zimmerman-Golden has a long working relationship with PNWF and is regarded by patients across Alaska. Contact her in Anchorage at 907- 264-2333.
During the IVF cycle much of the monitoring can be done in Alaska. After the patient's initial phone consultation with their PNWF provider, PNWF stays in close contact with the Alaskan team, working together to offer each patient the best care possible.

I have been extremely impressed and grateful for the level of care and service I have received from PNWF. Everyone has been caring, professional and helpful throughout my process. The calm and matter-of-fact demeanor of my nurse has been calming when I have been unsure of what to do or impatiently waiting a result. The day of the transfer went very smoothly and I would recommend PNWF to anyone going through this process. Thank you for everything.
