Andrea “Drea” McClain

Patient Experience Manager, STL Fertility

As STL Fertility’s Patient Experience manager, and a former fertility patient herself, Andrea (Drea) McClain truly understands what people struggling with infertility or looking to build a family are feeling day-to-day and appointment-to-appointment.

Having grown up in the St. Louis area, Drea appreciates the combination of local hands-on fertility care connected with the latest global treatment advancements like IVF, PGT-A, and egg freezing. “My role here is to advocate for patients and to make sure the little things and the big things are tended to with compassion, sometimes discretion, and more than a few hugs along the way.”

As part of a total care team focused on science, success, and support, Drea understands that sometimes you need a lifeline and a quick chat.  

Are you a current or new STL Fertility patient and need to chat with someone who’s been there and done that? Connect with Drea today at andrea.mcclain@stlfertility.com
