Clinical Interest for Patients
My primary clinical interests include robotic surgery, assisted reproductive technologies (IVF), endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I think it is important for the infertility specialist to provide a full range of clinical services, including surgical, in order to give patients their best chance for a successful outcome.

Care Philosophy
I think patients deserve to know as much as possible in order to make an informed decision. I believe in providing patients with every resource to fully understand their condition. I am fully committed to notion that the patient-doctor relationship should fundamentally be dedicated to realizing the patient's goals.

Personal Interests
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our three children. We like to do all sorts of outdoor activities, attend cultural events and travel. I enjoy rowing, an activity I have participated in since college and playing classical guitar.

Volunteer Activities
After 27 years of service, I retired as a Colonel in the United States Army reserve and have served in Iraq, Georgia, Germany and Mongolia, in addition to various duty stations in the United States.

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My research interests have evolved over the years. In fellowship, I was fascinated by communication between the embryo and the endometrium and I published several papers on this interaction. My specialty certification thesis, however, was a clinical evaluation on nutrition and its impact on the hypothalamic-pituitary-axis. I continued this focus with several studies on the impact of nutrition on polycystic ovarian syndrome. I have also recently become interested in both health disparities and access to health care as well as medical education.
