The Lancaster, PA location is one of five locations in Pennsylvania, with others located in Center City/PhiladelphiaChesterbrookWarrington, and Mechanicsburg. The high demand in Lancaster and positive patient response prompted the addition of a second reproductive endocrinologist in the region.

The SGF Lancaster, PA office will be home to Dr. Ochalski along with Kara Nguyen, M.D. Both board certified reproductive endocrinologists offer patients a collaborative approach to patient treatment and care. Services include new patient physician consultations, follow-up appointments, low-tech fertility treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), advanced fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and donor egg treatment, egg freezing (fertility preservation), andrology services, financial counseling, LGBTQ family building, and more.

“I am incredibly proud to be part of the SGF team because I believe it’s the absolute best place to receive fertility care. My colleagues are among the brightest in the field, and we challenge each other to provide excellent care for every patient,” says Dr. Ochalski.

Melanie Ochalski, M.D. is board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. She earned her medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC)–Magee-Womens Hospital.

She has published numerous peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts and review articles in many leading scientific journals and has been invited to present at national meetings. She is the recipient of multiple scientific and teaching awards.

“Dr. Ochalski was the most compassionate and empathetic doctor I could have asked for, especially at that time. She made me feel like she cared about me personally, not just as a patient. I was so grateful for her,” a former patient recalls.

Dr. Ochalski is an active member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and the North American Menopause Society. Her interests include assisted reproductive technologies, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), ovulatory disorders, and recurrent pregnancy loss.

“I am inspired by my patients, who have a dream in their heart of what their family looks like and pursue that vision without hesitation,” Dr. Ochalski explains. “Most of my patients have busy careers and lives, and the commitment they make to fulfill their dream of becoming parents inspires me to provide the best care possible to achieve that dream.”
