After graduating from Columbia University with undergraduate degree Psychology, I enrolled at the University of Medicine and Dentistry-. During my rotation in Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob/Gyn),(REI)
Following residency training in New Jersey, I began my fellowship in REI at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. The satisfaction and fulfillment I experienced during this time of patient care has never abated. My next home became Charlotte, NC where I was named Assistant Director in REI at Carolinas Medical Center, a teaching hospital for residents and medical students. During this time, I successfully completed board certification in both the fields of Ob/Gyn and REI. Additionally, I maintain voluntary annual Board recertification in both areas.
Desiring to advance professionally, I accepted the position of Medical Director of the Reproductive Health Institute (RHI), part of Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women here in Orlando. I was also named Director of the Division of REI, responsible for the medical education of residents and medical students in Ob/Gyn, a position I am still proud to hold. While honored to have a high degree of patient satisfaction, an excellent support staff and above average pregnancy rates at RHI, my goal was to open a non-hospital based center and expand “to provide the most comprehensive reproductive healthcare in a compassionate setting.”
With the above “mission statement,” I established Fertility C.A.R.E. (Center of Assisted Reproduction and Endocrinology) in Winter Park, Florida in March 2003. Due to continued growth, we opened Fertility C.A.R.E. IVF Division in March 2004 Additionally, we added Judith Burnett, PhD, a Reproductive Health Psychologist, to our team.
It is my pleasure to serve the reproductive needs of Florida patients as well as to serve as a consultant to my colleagues. I am excited about the plans to expand our services in the near future.
