"Infertility is a deeply personal and emotional experience for nearly all who must face it. I do not take this lightly and consider it an honor to be entrusted with the responsibility of guiding my patients along their journey, no matter what the circumstances.
While I have spent the better part of my life in science and medicine, I am constantly amazed by the advances and progress being made on a daily basis. REI is at the forefront of this progress and beautifully juxtaposes the empathetic humanistic side of patient care with cutting edge science and technology. It is my goal to provide the most up to date treatment options in a compassionate and understanding manner. I work with each person in my clinic to develop an individualized plan tailored to his or her specific situation and needs. No one should ever leave my office without a thorough understanding of what we are doing and why."
