In the spirit of local, independent thinkers who challenge the path most traveled, Boston Voyager reached out to our own fertility doctor - Rita Sneeringer, MD!
From small town Pennsylvania girl to Boston "hidden gem," Dr. Sneeringer took the path less traveled to ultimately become one of Boston's leading fertility experts. "I worked to help pay for my education since I was 15 years old," she says, "This instilled in me a very strong work ethic. I also owe a lot of my success to several scholarships that I was fortunate enough to have during college and medical school."
Her strong work ethic and commitment to education took her from her small town to Villanova University, where she studied Chemistry and Psychology. She then went to Georgetown Medical School before completing her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency and Reproductive Endocrinology fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Boston IVF, where she remains, now as a member of the medical practice.
"I learned a lot in those years about science, about patients, and simply about life," she says, "All of these varied experiences helped me become the type of doctor I am today. I strive to be a compassionate doctor offering the very best quality of care to patients going through the difficult challenge of infertility. Today, I learn so much from my patients and am always trying to find better ways to meet their needs."
Her vision of "providing comprehensive, patient-centered care for infertility," is the same vision that first attracted her to Boston IVF. Since joining our practice, "there have been many achievements including [her] favorite, over 75,000 babies born since 1986. And Boston IVF continues to look forward with ever-changing scientific advances that improve the success rates for our patients."
