Q: What makes your lab so special?
A: Many things make our lab special — the first being the embryologists. They are extremely talented, dedicated, open-minded and fun to work with. The second special attribute of our lab is the rate at which our patients get pregnant. Our pregnancy rates are topnotch. This is a reflection of the dedication of the embryologists, of the desire of the physicians to be evidence-based and leading-edge, and of the IVF nurses who take such good care of our patients. I believe our patients get the attention they need, an education about the obstacles preventing their conception, and how we are working to overcome those obstacles. And, our patients get the best opportunities we can provide so they can achieve the family they so desire.
Q: Do you have a special area of expertise?
A: One special area of expertise is my experience of being an infertility patient myself. I believe this experience helps me understand my patients, listen to them, educate them, and plan individualized care plans specific to a patient’s diagnosis, social circumstances and moral/ethical commitments.
