Why we should be your  FIRST choice:

FIRST is a center of excellence for infertility treatment, offering a complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. At FIRST, we know that undergoing therapy for infertility can be a very stressful, trying experience so we aim to provide streamlined care in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Our patients receive the benefits of high technology in a personalized, compassionate setting. Most importantly, unlike many South Florida centers where patients are seen by a different doctor at every visit, or even a paraprofessional, at FIRST, you will be attended by one physician only, Dr. Minna Ruth Selub.  We pride ourselves on the continuity of care we give to each and every patient.

FIRST is a fertility center where your case will not "fall through the cracks" and you will not "feel like a number."  While we know that with persistence, and, at times, creativity and flexibility, almost every infertility problem can be solved, we never peddle false hope, mislead, or negligently omit information about your individual chance for success.  Patients thank us over and over for being candid and offering realistic expectations for the journey that is resolving infertility.  We help patients be ready for stops along the way and present all routes of treatment, including, when feasible, the most affordable options, to guide them on the way to making dreams come true.

Our Full Range of Services Include:

  • IVF Program, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for male factor, MESA, TESE, and Preimplantation Genetic Testing
  • Donor Egg Program, as well as full Third Party Reproduction Program with option of immediately available in-house egg donors
  • Complete Fertility Clinic services, including evaluations, second opinions, diagnostic exams and fertility preservation for both sexes
  • All LGBTQ Reproductive Services, including reciprocal IVF and gestational surrogacy - if you can imagine it, we provide it!
  • Full spectrum of Infertility Treatment, from the most simple and affordable to cutting-edge assisted reproductive technologies (ART)

For all these reasons, patients worldwide continue to choose our services.  Since moving to South Florida in 1991, Dr. Selub has successfully treated patients locally and throughout the United States, as well as international patients from North, Central, and South America, the Caribbean basin, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.  We hope you enjoy visiting our website.  Please do contact us if you need further information.  We look forward to working with you!

Mission Statement

Our practice is working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in reproductive care.

At FIRST-IVF we believe that Assisted Reproductive Technology, a gift of science to help patients become parents, should not have to be a major financial concern. We do whatever we can to keep cost from hindering someone from going through the process of infertility treatment. That's why our fee schedules and programs, even for self-pay patients, are among the best and most affordable anywhere! We gladly accept the following insurances:

N.B.: The list of medical insurance FIRST-IVF accepts changes frequently, so if you do not see your insurance listed above feel free to contact us. Please understand that insurance coverage for infertility treatment is unique for each individual, depending on their plan. Our staff can guide you through all the steps necessary to find out the extent of your insurance coverage to help you attain your goal.
