Get to Know Warrington fertility specialist, Dr. Ryan Martin
Dr. Martin is a Yale University-trained fertility specialist, where he also served as an instructor at the Yale University School of Medicine and earned numerous teaching awards.
“What attracted me most to the field of infertility was that I understand what it’s like to have a loss of control, which is a common feeling among those who are struggling to conceive. I can directly empathize with this in my own life,” said Dr. Martin.
Following a tragic injury at the age of 12 that left him paralyzed from the waist down, the highly competitive and determined athlete spent a good portion of his youth traveling an international circuit to compete in various tennis tournaments. He then turned his competitive nature into his pursuit to become a doctor. Dr. Martin became the first wheelchair-bound student to ever graduate from Yale Medical School.

What Patients are Saying about Dr. Martin:
“My husband and I are so lucky we were scheduled for our initial appointment with Dr. Martin when we arrived at Shady Grove Fertility. He was a perfect fit for our personalities and made the process so much more easy going and less stressful because of that. He took the time to explain everything to us in terms we would understand (he even drew us some great pictures!) and we never felt lost or alone. His nursing staff is phenomenal and always kept in touch when I had tons of questions or concerns.” Former Dr. Martin Patient, Warrington, PA
“I am so appreciative Dr. Martin did everything he said he would do. Thank you, Dr. Martin.” Former Dr. Martin Patient, Warrington, PA
“Dr. Martin and the Shady Grove Fertility team are truly a dream team that you can put your full trust in. The level of support, care, knowledge, and encouragement provided allowed us an incredibly comfortable and great experience. They truly share your goals and want to help you achieve your dream. I had many questions throughout the entire process and appreciate that Dr. Martin and Tori always took time to provide clear responses without ever rushing me or making me feel silly for asking. I went from being very nervous prior to my first appointment to completely relaxed and excited to see Dr. Martin and his team so we could navigate the path to pregnancy together. I feel some emptiness in my heart that I won’t be interacting with them on as regular a basis now but I appreciate their proactiveness in asking me to check in with them to share my progress – I definitely plan to do so! I’ll miss being under their care and will forever be grateful that my husband and I met Dr. Martin. He was the perfect doctor for us to partner with and we would highly recommend him. If you read this Dr. Martin – thank you again for being such a kind, knowledgeable, professional, and caring physician! Keep sharing your positive vibes and warm smile with your patients.” Former Dr. Martin Patient, Warrington, PA

Q: WHY DID YOU BECOME A DOCTOR/REPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGIST?
A: A reproductive endocrinologist gave my class a lecture in my third year of medical school about treating infertility. He talked extensively about IVF and pre genetic screening of embryos and the ability to help change people’s lives for the better. After shadowing him in his clinic and watching him make so many couples’ dreams come true, I was inspired to become a reproductive endocrinologist.
Q: WHO INSPIRES YOU?
A: I am inspired by those who strive to help others. I am always amazed by doctors and nurses who bond with their patients and have the ability to put them at ease. I strive to be able to do that with my patients and make a difficult process as tolerable as possible.
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND WHY DO YOU ENJOY THEM?
A: I enjoy playing tennis and scuba diving. I have always liked tennis because it requires strength, concentration, drive, and belief in yourself in order to be successful. Scuba diving is my favorite hobby because of the adventure, wildlife, and the brilliant colors and scenery.
Q: WHAT IS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT WOULD SURPRISE MOST PEOPLE?
A: Most people don’t know that I used to play professional wheelchair tennis on a world circuit before I went into medicine.
Q: WHAT ABOUT SGF MAKES YOU THE MOST PROUD?
A: I am so proud to be part of Shady Grove Fertility because of the outstanding care that is provided and by the amazing people who work here.

It is clear that everyone at SGF knows what patients are going through and I am honored to be part of a great team.
Q: WHAT’S ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
A: I would love to go scuba diving with my wife and son in Bali and on the Great Barrier Reef. Going on a safari in Africa is also on my bucket list.
Q: DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU WERE INSPIRED BY A PATIENT.
A:I am inspired by my patients daily and their ability to make decisions under difficult situations.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO HELPING PATIENTS WHO ARE STRUGGLING?
A: It is a tremendous honor to be able to help couples struggling with infertility. I believe that it is critical to provide patients with an accurate, honest medical opinion in order for them to make informed decisions about their reproductive options and future. Patients should have the autonomy to make decisions based on accurate information.
Q: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
A: I am an honest, transparent person who thrives on relating with his patients. I believe it is the cornerstone of being a good physician. I am proud to be able to empathize with patients’ struggles and try to find humor where I can.
