Why Did You Choose This Profession?
I feel there are very few fields of medicine where you get to truly change your patient’s lives in such a profound and meaningful way. I am honored to work in this field.
What About Boston IVF Makes You Proud?
Working in collaboration with such a compassionate and supportive team to help our patients achieve their goal of becoming parents.
What is Your Approach to Patient Care?
Infertility patients face a variety of emotional, financial, physical, and other struggles. It is important to find out from them how these struggles are impacting their infertility journey so that we can utilize the extensive supports we have to offer our patients. We have excellent financial coordinators who work hard to advise our patients on their insurance benefits/limitations and to offer programs that may assist our patients financially. We have caring and experienced social workers and therapists who can help our patients struggling emotionally; as well as acupuncturists on site to aid/support our patient’s physical struggles. And of course we have some of the best fertility specialists providing unparalleled medical care to all patients.
Have Any Patients Truly Inspired You?
The resilience of so many of our patients never ceases to amaze me.
