M.D., FRCSC, GREI
“I love that every patient I see comes in with a different story, a different presenting issue and requires a personalized approach in order to try to achieve an optimal and satisfactory solution. I really enjoy explaining the physiology of reproduction, where things can potentially go off-track and how we can attempt to fix it. Getting positive pregnancy tests, reassuring obstetrical ultrasounds and meeting babies in person are the highlight of the job!”
