Welcome From Dr. Barbara A. McGuirk, Medical Director of Reproductive Surgery
I’d like to welcome you and take this opportunity to tell you about RADfertility and me. I have been dedicated to women’s health since earning my medical degree in 1988. My education in obstetrics and gynecology reinforced what I already knew as a mother – the miracle of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood really is what life is all about. I knew I wanted to help struggling couples who cannot have children on their own.
After completing my reproductive endocrinology fellowship, I could have joined any number of established practices, but I intended to provide a very specific kind of fertility care. To give the kind of care I believe in, I knew I had to create a special place and team. I founded RADfertility and was soon joined by my partner, Dr. Feinberg. We’ve helped grow thousands of families since that time and have maintained our shared commitment to the patients we serve.
Our approach to reproductive medicine centers on you. Your specific health needs and goals for your family guide your treatment here. Whether your personal solution is a hormone or drug therapy, a minimally invasive surgery to resolve your fertility issue or a more advanced option like IVF, you’ll get the care that’s right for you. During your time with us, you will be respected, involved in your care and treated the way we would like to be treated if we were in your place.
Helping you have the family you want while providing a wonderful experience for you – one you can look back on with fondness – I cannot imagine a more fulfilling way to offer my expertise in this fascinating area of medicine. It’s my greatest reward.

"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."
"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."
"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."
"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"
"The staff and doctors are amazing. It will feel like home every time you walk in the door. They gifted us with our miracle baby and we couldn’t be happier. I will always recommend RADfertility above all others!"
"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options. I am so fortunate and appreciative of the care that I received at RADfertility. They go above and beyond."
"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."
"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
