“Dr. Roth was extremely knowledgeable from the start of our process until the very end. She went over all our possibilities and made sure we understood each one of them. She made the process worry free and exciting! She answered any questions we had through the process without hesitation. She personally called us when it was confirmed we were pregnant! I would recommend Dr. Roth to anyone!” shared one recent patient of Dr. Roth’s.

Q&A with Dr. Lauren Roth:

Dr. Lauren Roth sat down with us to talk about why she became a reproductive endocrinologist, what she likes to do in her free time, and the best part of being on the SGF team:

Why did you become a doctor?
My dad (an anesthesiologist) took me to see a knee replacement surgery when I was 12 for Take Your Daughter to Work Day and I was hooked. That day set me on the path to becoming a physician.

Where did your interest in reproductive endocrinology come from?
My passion for women’s health developed when I was in college learning about two important sides to women’s health: reproductive biology (as part of my pre-med classes) and the social aspects of women’s health including the full range of reproductive rights (as a Women’s Studies major). I chose to pursue Obstetrics and Gynecology to care for women at the most important moments of their life. Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility is the perfect balance of personal relationships, patient advocacy, and science for me. I feel privileged to help people through a difficult journey to achieve their goal of a family.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love cooking while listening to NPR and going out to try new restaurants. I lived in Colorado for several years and enjoy outdoor activities including hiking and skiing. Yoga, running, and other fitness classes keep me in shape and relieve stress.

What is something about you that would surprise most people?
Although I love to cook, I rarely follow a recipe. As a result, I am pretty bad at baking!

How would you describe your personality?
Friendly, caring, sensitive, and unafraid to speak my mind when I believe in something.

What is the best part of being on the SGF team?
I am thrilled to work for an organization where everyone has the same goal: providing the best care possible for patients. It is an honor to work for a nationally recognized practice, and even more exciting that the people I get to work with are sincere, caring, and smart.

What’s on your bucket list?
Retiring to the mountains of Colorado.

What is your approach to helping patients who are struggling?
The infertility journey can be long and emotional. I try to support patients by reaching out and spending time talking with them. It is my goal to partner with my patients to help make their experience the best it can be.

Dr. Lauren Roth is currently available for new patient appointments in our Harrisburg, PA, Frederick, MD, and Rockville, MD offices. To schedule your appointment, call 1-877-971-7755 or fill out this brief form.
