Patient Testimonial
We absolutely loved Dr. Moon! She was very calm, reassuring and knowledgeable.

I have had two successful pregnancies thanks to Dr. Moon!

Dr. Moon’s even-keeled, strong and determined manner helped us to gain more emotional strength during a very trying time.

Dr. Moon was an absolute pleasure to work with on this fertility journey.

I just want to thank Dr. Moon for all her care. She is an not only an incredible doctor but also an amazing human being.

After meeting with Dr. Moon and her staff, we knew immediately that we were in good hands.

I am so happy that Dr. Moon was our doctor during this difficult time, and I am so grateful to her for making us a family of 3!

I had a great experience with Dr. Moon. She and her team made what is generally an uncomfortable process as un-intimidating and comfortable as possible.

Q&A

I love to sail. It is my Zen place. I love getting out on the water and being outside regardless of whether it’s sunny, rainy, windy, warm, or cold. I love the focus it takes to get the boat perfectly balanced and sailing as fast as possible. I love seeing all of the marine animal—manta rays, dolphins, osprey, turtles, and sharks—that I get to see out there. It all gives me a sense of peace and calm unlike anything else.

I have shared this with many people, so perhaps it’s not a surprise, but I am a breast cancer survivor. I finished treatment in 2008 and I am doing great. I think the key to getting through something very tough like that is focusing on what you have and not on what you are missing. I do think that the experience of having cancer has changed my perspective as a physician, because I’ve been on both sides of the table.

The amazing team of people I work with makes me the most proud. There are a lot of emotions, both up and down, involved in what we do, which makes our jobs both extremely rewarding but also difficult at times. I am constantly amazed with the hard work, dedication, and extra effort that our team puts in to do our absolute best. I am extremely proud of our success rates and the number of people we help achieve the families they desire.

I would like to travel to all the continents (I am currently at five). I would also like to sail around the world with my husband.

 I am honest to a fault, loyal, thoughtful, caring, and hardworking.
