"Listening to patients, hearing their stories and answering their questions is central to my work in reproductive medicine. I strive to foster a dialogue between physician and patient, and to provide customized, cost-effective care. In addition to advanced fertility treatments such as egg freezing and in vitro fertilization, I am an expert in reproductive surgery, including minimally invasive surgery and the surgical management of Müllerian anomalies of the uterus.”
