Our nurses assist our specialists with every aspect of your fertility care. Each has a deep dedication to the practice of fertility medicine, and they make a real difference in the lives of everyone who walks through our doors.
Paulette Friscia has been a nurse practitioner for more than 26 years and was recruited to Kofinas Fertility Group in 1988. Prior to joining us, she worked as an obstetrical nurse and a nurse practitioner with a certification in women’s health.
As the head of nursing at Kofinas Fertility Group, Friscia oversees the nursing staff and coordinates the activities of the ovulation induction, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and egg donor programs. She also performs clinical tests, such as post-coital testing, ultrasounds and endometrial biopsies.
Friscia has accumulated a depth of experience managing all aspects of infertility and is always available to answer questions and guide patients through the very stressful process of fertility treatment.
Janeis Chesson joined the Kofinas Fertility Group in 2005 and has been contributing to the success of the practice ever since.

As clinical nurse supervisor, Chesson is remarkably skilled at understanding your needs and answering any of your questions and concerns. She devotes herself to providing you with individualized care and emotional support. With the help of our knowledgeable and friendly staff, she will educate you about the IVF process and work with you one-on-one during each stage of your treatment.
