Crystal and Quinn Fulcher knew the road to building a family would be difficult. After years of testing, Crystal was diagnosed with unexplained infertility due to endometriosis. It was an extremely emotional and trying time for the couple.

In 2012, under the consultation of Dr. Tamer Yalcinkaya, then at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and now founder and director at Carolinas Fertility Institute (CFI), the couple decided to undergo IVF treatment. Crystal became pregnant from the first IVF cycle with their first son, Dempsey, now 2 years old.

“Of course, we were thrilled,” said Crystal. “At the time IVF pregnancies were less likely with the first cycle, and we felt the quick success was a true blessing.”

When considering a second try for an IVF baby, they learned about Dr. Y’s new clinic, Carolinas Fertility Institute (CFI), a fertility practice with high success rates and many first-time-cycle pregnancies.

“We were amazed by the technology, and the staff truly cares about the patients,” said Crystal, now 28 weeks pregnant with their second IVF baby, due on May 2nd. “I want to let women and couples know that there’s hope and the chances to get pregnant are very high if you select the right fertility clinic,” noted Crystal.

Carolinas Fertility Institute is a practice with offices in Winston-Salem and Greensboro that specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of infertility. CFI provides advanced reproductive technologies in a comforting, supportive environment to give patients the personal care they deserve.

CFI currently has among the highest IVF success rates in the nation due to a combination of professional talent and the latest technology. CFI has been delighting patients since their opening in March 2015, specializing in highly-personalized treatment and resulting in many first-cycle pregnancies.

The practice is one of only two IVF centers in the United States using both the LifeAire™ air purification system plus Embryoscope™ embryo tracking system*, resulting in our remarkable ongoing pregnancy rates. CFI accepts most insurance plans and offers a range of options for self-pay patients, including IVF, Donor egg IVF and Fertility Preservation. Patients interested in obtaining additional information about Carolinas Fertility Institute and our services, you may call 336 448 9100 or visit us at
