FertilityAuthority Acknowledges Top Fertility Doctor

New York, NY, February 09, 2010 --(PR.com)-- FertilityAuthority has named Dr. Robert J. Stillman M.D., F.A.C.O.G its Doctor of the Month. FertilityAuthority’s “Doctor of the Month” honor spotlights a fertility doctor who stands apart from the crowd. Each month the Fertility Authority editors, in consultation with their Advisory Board and experts in the field of reproductive medicine, recognize one specialist for his/her ground-breaking research, outstanding patient care, efforts to make treatment accessible or unique treatment philosophy.

Dr. Stillman is a Clinical Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Georgetown University School of Medicine and the Medical Director at Shady Grove Fertility Center in Rockville, MD (part of the IntegraMed Fertility Network). He is a nationally recognized expert, researcher and leader in the fertility treatment field.

Dr. Stillman is also an advocate for the health and well being of women and their babies. “We have an ethical responsibility, not only to patient autonomy, but to the other major principle of beneficence,” he explains. This commitment to his patients and their future children drives his efforts to promote elective Single Embryo Transfer (eSET) in his practice and in his partnerships with RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). It’s why FertilityAuthority has chosen Dr. Stillman as their RE of the Month.

“Dr. Stillman shares our commitment to empowering and educating fertility patients,” says FertilityAuthority’s Executive Editor, Laurie Gordon. “His work has benefited not only his own patients but also men and women across the country struggling with infertility.”

Previous Doctor of the Month honorees include Mitchell Rosen, Tarun Jain, Mark Trolice, John Zhang, Andrew Toledo, Avner Hershlag, Angeline Beltsos and Sherman Silber.
