Connect with our clinic today to learn more about us and our reproductive endocrinologist near Salem VA.
What will a reproductive endocrinologist do?
When you go see an RE, you’re seeing a medical professional who specializes solely in helping people get and stay pregnant. First, the professional will provide a consultation with a patient to determine whether there’s an issue with fertility, then proceed with testing and making a diagnosis. The questions, tests, and diagnosis provided will identify the patient’s particular cause of their infertility, whether it’s endometriosis, anovulation, male factor infertility, or another issue.
To treat a patient and help a couple start or expand their family, the RE might use assisted reproductive technologies like intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or another treatment. We provide such treatments here at The New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine, and we can help many people, including those in the LGBTQ community.
What is the difference between a reproductive endocrinologist and a fertility specialist?
It’s common for people to use the terms “reproductive endocrinologist” and “fertility specialist” interchangeably, but the terms are very different. The reproductive endocrinologist is a board-certified doctor with many years of training, and the fertility specialist is anyone—regardless of their level of education and experience—in the general field of fertility.
Basically, a reproductive endocrinologist is fully qualified to provide fertility and pregnancy services, but a general fertility specialist isn’t necessarily qualified to help on a professional level. It’s the reproductive endocrinologist that you’ll want to see if you and your partner are serious about getting pregnant. We have a fully capable reproductive endocrinologist here at The New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
How do I choose a reproductive endocrinologist?
You could ask family or friends whether they would recommend an RE to you, or you could look online for something like, “reproductive endocrinologist near me.” Instead, you could just come see us here at The New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine where we have a highly capable RE in Dr. Robin Poe-Zeigler MD FACOG.
The doctor finished medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School and her four-year residency at The York Hospital in York, PA. Dr. Robin was later awarded a fellowship at The Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Norfolk, Virginia, and a few years after that, in 1997, she opened The New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine. Since then and for 20 years now, she has helped bring thousands of healthy babies into this world! You can be very confident in the doctor’s capabilities.
Do you have a reproductive endocrinologist near Salem VA?
