We Welcome Center for Reproductive Health and Dr. Scott Springer to Our Team

Vios Fertility Institute Physicians, Dr. Springer, Dr. Jeelani, Dr. Beltsos, and Dr. Louden.

We are proud to officially announce the acquisition of Center for Reproductive Health, a widely-respected fertility practice founded by Dr. Scott Springer with locations in Crest Hill, IL and Geneva, IL. Read our full press release here.

A board-certified physician who specializes in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Springer became disenchanted early in his career with the standard practice business model that had nurses and technicians doing most of the work.  While still early in his career, Springer desired a better way to serve and care for his patients, so in 2001 he introduced the Center for Reproductive Health with a commitment to providing fertility treatments in a one on one personalized patient setting.

Vios is led by CEO and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Angeline Beltsos, who is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI), practicing medicine since 1991.  Dr. Beltsos, along with Vios physicians including Dr. Roohi Jeelani and Dr. Erica Louden, will join Dr. Springer in serving patients at the Crest Hill and Geneva locations.

“We are honored to have Dr. Springer join the team and bring his incredible reputation, passion and expertise for building families to Vios,” explains Dr. Beltsos.  “We are excited to partner with him to increase our services and access to fertility care to the Western and Southwest suburbs of Chicago.”

Vios Fertility Institute now has 11 locations in the Chicagoland, Milwaukee, and St. Louis regions and accepts a wide range of insurance options. To schedule an appointment, click here.
