WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Since I was a medical student, I have been interested in helping patients overcome infertility and achieve their dream of completing their family. I have been lucky and privileged to have done my fellowship training with Howard W. Jones, Jr., MD, and Georgeanna Jones, MD -- the physicians responsible for the first in vitro fertilization baby born in the United States in December 1981. More than all the medical material that they taught me, I learned from them to be inquisitive and creative in my thinking, and to not accept certain forms of treatment simply because they are considered the "current standard of practice." This has helped me throughout my career to do research and publish more than 180 articles on understanding fertility issues that patients have, and to devise newer methods of treatment. I love to see patients who were told that they could not be helped, as I often find the contrary. My biggest reward is when I meet patients, several years after they were successful with a baby (or babies), and they look at me with joy and gratitude and say, "Doctor, you have changed our lives."

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests for the last 30 years has focused on ovarian stimulation protocols for in vitro fertilization. Specifically, I am interested in simplifying the in vitro fertilization procedure for patients, so it can become less costly, less stressful, and more successful. I have also focused on decreasing the risks and complications for patients.
