Q&A

Q & A

Q: Why did you become a doctor?

A:

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.

Q: Where did your interest in reproductive endocrinology come from?

A:

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.

Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

A:

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.

Q: What is something about you that would surprise most people?

A:

Although I love to cook, I rarely follow a recipe. As a result, I am pretty bad at baking!

Q: How would you describe your personality?

A:

Friendly, caring, sensitive, and unafraid to speak my mind when I believe in something.

Q: What is the best part of being on the SGF team?

A:

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.

Q: What’s on your bucket list?

A:

Retiring to the mountains of Colorado.

Q: What is your approach to helping patients who are struggling?

A:

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.

Reviews

“I cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Roth. In the time I spent with her, she explained more about why I was having difficulty getting pregnant and what test results meant than my previous fertility doctor had in 2 months. She was so knowledgeable, but spoke in terms that I understood. She was patient and kind and made me feel so comfortable and taken care of. I had a plan of where I was going next and understood what was happening which made me feel so at ease and confident in my care. She is amazing!!”

“Dr. Roth is so nice. She always has a positive vibe about her”

"After leaving another fertility clinic, coming to Shady Grove and working with Dr. Roth was a dream!! The entire staff is kind, extremely professional and take such amazing care of their patients. I cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Roth. She is so incredibly knowledgeable with infertility and IVF, but she is like talking to a girlfriend. She makes sure you understand everything and walks you through the entire process. I could not ask for a better experience than I have had at Shady Grove and with Dr. Roth. Truly, the entire staff, and ANY of their locations, have been lovely."

"Dr. Roth is incredible! So so kind, sincere, caring, and genuine. She truly has her patients best interest at heart at all times and never stops looking for the very best treatment possible. She is down to earth and there for you through ANYTHING! The staff at Shady Grove Camp Hill is TOP NOTCH and I would recommend them to absolutely anyone."

"Dr. Roth is honestly the kindest most sincere doctor I have EVER encountered. She truly cares about her patients and their success. There were many times she had to give me bad news (poor responder) but was always 100% there to answer any questions and cheer me up. She always had a new plan for moving forward and helped us become SUCCESSFUL with our miracle baby. I could truly never thank Dr. Roth and her staff enough. They are TOP NOTCH and I would HIGHLY recommend them!!"

"My husband and I underwent treatment at several facilities before coming to Shady Grove and meeting Dr. Roth - I wish we had come sooner! After 14 failed rounds previously (including 3 rounds of IVF), we successfully conceived after our FIRST round with Dr. Roth doing ovulation induction and IUI. It was truly unbelievable. Dr. Roth was so personable and easy so work with. I felt like she truly cared when we told her our story. Our daughter is about to turn 5 months old!"
