Inspiration And Insights
3 min readAug 16, 2023

“There are many reasons that can bring an individual or a couple to a fertility clinic, people who come to see us should expect a personalized approach to their evaluation and care.”

As a faculty member specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Penn State College of Medicine, I hold the duty of delivering healthcare services to women and couples facing infertility in my capacity. This involves ensuring their availability to a wide range of fertility treatments. My primary aim revolves around promoting fairness in healthcare access by enhancing geographical reach and nurturing emerging leaders who will champion health technology. Functioning as a representative for women’s reproductive health, I’ve personally observed the significance of embracing diverse cultures, maintaining an open perspective, and fostering inclusivity.

When the moment arrives to consult an expert in infertility matters, I seized the opportunity to share my insights on Good Day PA. This broadcast is a dynamic channel that disseminates news and information, stimulating meaningful dialogues. Good Day PA has flourished into a formidable media presence, capturing the attention and involvement of a substantial viewership.

“We spend a lot of time getting their history and asking questions so that we can then tailor the types of tests that we can perform that allow us to understand the particular needs of an individual so that we can perform appropriate treatments and offer appropriate solutions.

We are still operating telehealth appointments and this gives patients an opportunity to seek providers, social distance, and feel comfortable at home while starting their valuation, serving as an important access point for patients and certainly good to know what options there are to treat infertility.

The treatments that we offer include fertility medication, uterine insemination, and in-vitro fertilization. We also offer egg-freezing, embryo-freezing, and sperm-freezing for people who need to think about and plan for their fertility goals.

But most importantly, we are in a position to offer state-of-the-art fertility treatments that are both highly effective and very safe.

Anyone who ends up needing to work with a fertility specialist, we can meet you where you are in the form of telehealth appointments and in person when necessary and when the time is right.

Ultimately our goal is to provide supported and personalized care to help patients with their fertility goals and fertility journey.”
