Q: You were once chief resident, and likely had your pick of sub-specialties. Why did you choose reproductive endocrinology?
A: We perform rotations as interns, so I spent time with reproductive endocrinologists during my residency. I saw my first ultrasounds during that time, and experienced moments when couples saw or heard the baby’s heartbeat. That joy peaked my interest
I love the amazing things we as fertility specialists can do for people. For example, preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) can eliminate the threat of genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis (CF). Finally, I’m drawn to the cutting edge technology that drives reproductive endocrinology. Fertility is an exciting field, and one that is constantly changing. I’ve practiced medicine for more than a decade, and there is always something new on the horizon.
