Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?
I wanted to be a doctor since I was in second grade. What type of doctor I wanted to be changed several times during my journey to become a physician. Ultimately I decided to be a reproductive endocrinologist because I can be primarily an educator. I explain the causes of infertility, along with work-up and treatment, to the patients and then work with them to come up with the treatment that is best for them. It is unbelievably rewarding to help patients who are so dedicated and motivated to accomplish such a wonderful goal of being parents.
